SAMPLE

The Yancheng biosphere reserve is located on the Sub-Huang Huai plain of northern China, specifically in the Palearctic biogeographical region. The reserve consists of a coastal marsh wetland that extends up to 582 kilometres, and includes a variety of salt marshes. Tidal salt marshes account for over 80% of the reserve’s area and contain the most salt-resistant flora species. In addition, two major rivers traverse the region: the Yellow River and the Yangtze River
