This is a type of ecological landscape in the subtropical monsoon climate region that is dominated by broadleaf forests. The broadleaf forest is evergreen and is mainly composed of evergreen dicotyledons. The plant structure is much simpler than that of a tropical rainforest. The trees are generally divided into two layers with a height of approximately 16–20 m, and they rarely exceed 25 m. Climbers and epiphytic plants are common and mainly include herbaceous and woody vines.
