Nanling

(nän`līng`), mountain range of Guangdong and Hunan prov. and Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, S China; rises to c.6,900 ft (2,100 m). The Nanling form the geographical boundary between central and S China. They separate the Chang and Xi drainage basins, protect S China from cold northern air masses, and divide the Cantonese civilization and linguistic area from that of central China. The mountains lie in parallel ridges that hinder north-south travel.

Climatically, the Nanling mountains have been suggested as the tropical demarcation, roughly south of 24[degrees]-25[degrees]N in southern China (Guangxi and Guangdong provinces), and up to 26[degrees]N in southeastern China (Fujian province) (Zhu & Wan, 1963).
