dc.description.abstract There has been a long debate over the effect of logging on flood events. The 1998 Yangtze River Flood sounded the alarm for Chinese Government to take actions to protect her environment for sustainable development and Chinese Government proposed strict logging ban after this disaster. Unexpectedly, these well-intentioned environmental policies received controversy criticism from the international community. The main reason behind this phenomenon is that the relationship between forest and flood is still unclear. Based on intense literature research, this paper uses Yangtze River Watershed as a specific example to explore the relationship between forests, floods, and the biophysical environment. Chinese Government’s policy taken after 1998 Yangtze River Flood will also be evaluated according to conclusions made regarding the relationship between logging and flood. en_US
