  • Ju'e Guo

Generally, they include land, water, minerals, and biological and climatic resources. Some natural resources are affected by zonal factors; others are restricted by non-zonal factors. As a result, all natural resources on the globe have a problem of uneven spatial distribution and strict regional characteristics. The status and characteristics of Chinese natural resources are as follows.
