In the forest-steppe ecotone in Inner Mongolia of China, different tree-species are distributed with different MAP range in the forest-steppe ecotone. Both modern vegetation pattern and the Holocene vegetation development show that Chinese pine was the most drought tolerant tree species and can resist long-term climate drying. Strong human impact on vegetation was constrained to the West Liao River basin over thousands of years of sedentary agriculture.
