Fig. 10. Yin, Kaipu, Tracing one hundred years of change: Illustrating the environmental changes in Western China (Beijing: Encyclopedia of China Publishing House, 2010), pp. 560 & 561. Dates: Old Photo 1910-08-27, New Photo 2008-10-31. Location: Anhong Township. Caption: “The old photo was taken almost at the same site of the previous one. Some big trees of Abies faxoniana in front indicate that the right back of the Minjiang River was once covered by dense forests. Because of landslides on the mountains on both sides of the river, the landscape has greatly changed. The forests on the right slope were cut down and replaced by secondary forests. In recent years, the area has been reforested, and some young A. faxiniana trees grow among the shrubs.”; Ernest “Chinese” Wilson's Re-imagined Legacy in Sichuan
