Natural Conditions :
According to the plate tectonic of China, Dayi county belongs to the western region of the Yangtze Plate. It is located at the confluence of Chengdu Plain and the Mountain Longmen and is a part of the east edge of the eastward tectonic belt of the north mountain Longmen. The northeast--southwest great Penguan Fault crosses through middle area of the county along the line of Tian Chepo—Xilin town—Tang Wangba. To the east of the line is the leading edge part of the nappe of the front mountain Longmen, and to the west is the foreland basin of stratigraphic of Cretaceous sediments. The westward descent of the later along the great Penguan Fault formed the former.
Folds and faults are growing in the west mountainous area of the Dayi county. The primary folds include the Baoxing anticline, the Qipeng mountain inversed anticline, the Black Water River syncline, the Shi Tigou thrust syncline, the Tang Wangba anticline, the Guankou syncline, the anticline in Jinyuan town, the mountain Phoenix syncline, Yin Maba anticline and some other multi-order folds; the primary faults include faults of Mo Zigou, Huangtong Janzi and Shuanghe reverse fault, and multi-order faults of Chuan Xikou, Wang Bagang and Jinlin Temple; the primary rock types include granite, peridotite, pyroxenite, Purple Sand Rock, shale, acid resistant rock, etc. the whole county is located at the tectonic active belt with complex geological tectonics.
Dayi County is situated in the front belt of the transitional zone of the Chengdu plain to the northwest plateau of Sichuan. To the west, it is the confluence of the Chengdu plain and the Longmen Shanmai. In the control of the above geologic structure and influenced by the comprehensive affections of the unequal range of ascend and descend and the removing corrosion caused by water flow, topography of the county is various with the coexistence of plains, hills, low mountains, medium mountains, mountains and extremely high mountains in a in a series of cascade from east to west. It includes 22.8% plains, 16.7% hills and 60.5% mountainous regions,
Meanwhile, the west part of the typical area of plain transiting to plateau raises rapidly, which causes the relevant height in this county is extremely great. The highest peak----Miao Jiling (Da Xuetang) lies 5364 meters above se-level. The lowest elevation is only 475 meters at the Ancestral Temple of Yang Family. The relative difference of height reaches 4889meters. The west mountainous area has cracked geomorphology with crisscrossed valleys, an unimpeded sweep of mountains and graceful landscapes. With mid latitude and low elevation, the Xiling snow mountain is the one of the snow-land wonders.
Dayi County lies in the subtropical humid monsoon climate zone with a warm and humid climate. It has sufficient heat and rain without extremely hot summers and bitterly cold winters which contributes the county to be a wonderful place to develop year-round tourism. The annual average temperature is 16.0ºc (flat areas). The average temperature in January is 5.5ºc; in July is 26.1ºc. The extremely lowest temperature is -4.8ºc and the extremely highest temperature is 35.1ºc. The average frost-free days has been maintaining as 284 days for many years. The average annual rainfall is 1098.2mm.
Dayi County has a remarkable difference in its elevation. The temperature reduces as the elevation increasing. The average temperatures of hills and mountainous regions relatively are 12 ºc-15 º c and 11.4cº. The higher is the elevation, the more is the annual rainfall. The average rainfalls of plains, hills and mountainous regions relatively are 1095.5mm, 1156.3mm and 1268.8mm. Most rainfall happens in July and August, which is the 46.3 %( flat areas) of the annual rainfall. The annual average sunlight hours of flat areas, hills and mountainous areas are relatively 1033.8 hours, 744.4hours and 683.7hours. The characteristics of the vertical diversities in biology and weather always make “a single mountain has 4 seasons simultaneously and various weathers happen in ten Li” appear as the height of elevation changes.
Characteristics of Biology
The warm and humid climate contributes the broad advantage of land. Various topographies influence the vital and zoological factors of light, heat and water, which causes protean and different combines and distributions of genes of light, heat and water in diverse topographic form regions and climes, thereby diverse natural entironment types are formed and the advantage of variety of biology is obvious. According to the existing achievements of research and investigation, 226 branches, 1527 categories and 8600 kinds of pants and 5 groups and 36 families of amniotes, including animals and plants under special state protection, such as Ginkgo biloba, dovetree, Metasequoia which are referred as living fossil, and rare animals such as panda and golden monkeys. Therefore, it can be said that Dayi county is an important gene library of species resources and an research and education base of excellent biology and geography.
Meanwhile, the distribution rules of plants in vertical zones is very clear as factors of light, heat and water varied in accordance of the change of sea level elevation. The Zonal baseband vegetation of Dayi county is subtropical evergreen broad-leaved forest. From bottom to top, the vertical zoning spectrum is: the evergreen broad-leaved forest (elevation<1500meters) -----the evergreen broad-leaved forest and the deciduous and broad-leaved forest (elevation is 1500—2400meters) ----- the evergreen conifer forest (elevation is 2400—2800meters) ----- the evergreen coniferous and deciduous forests (elevation is 2800—3500meters) ----- the sub-alpine bush meadow (elevation is 3300—3800meters) ----- the alpine meadow (elevation is 3800—4500meters) ----- the alpine cold desert (elevation is 4000—5000meters).
【Landform】 Dayi county is situated in the front belt of the transitional zone of the Chengdu plain to the northwest plateau of Sichuan.

The bottom of the southeast area is Yang Ancestral Temple in Hanchang town with elevations only of 475 meters. All stratums from Proterozoic to Palaeozoic Erathem of the county have protruded through the soil level except Lower Paleozoic and Carboniferous system. The geologic formation of the county is a part of the plate tectonic of mountain Longmen. The so-called great Penguan Fault crosses through the county along the line of Tian Chepo—Xilin town—Tang Wangba. To the east of the line is the leading edge part of the nappe of the front mountain Longmen, and to the west are the western margin of the upper Yangtze Plateform diving westward along the great Penguan Fault and the foreland basin of sediments of Cretaceous and the upper stratum.
