The Hengduan Range is complicated in geological structure and active in new tectonic movements. It lies on the east flank of the juncture area where south Asia and Eurasis are mounted. It is the transition region between the east zones encircling the Pacific and the west southeast. Most parts of the area are characterized by a series of paralleled mountain ranges and rivers from south to north, and with a sharp altitudinal differentiation. Its unique physical conditions and various ecosystems rich in flora and funa with abundant relic species, give the area a critical nature for the fundamental research in the field of biology and earth science.
