  • The correct answer is - Southeastern China is colored in green, which means it has a humid climate that regulates environmental and ecological changes, preventing desertification.

    The southeastern part of China is not a region that is danger of desertification because it has more than enough rainfall to stop a process like that, and maintain the environmental balance in the region.

    This part of the country is heavily influenced by the monsoons. The monsoons bring in very large amounts of rainfall during the rainy season, much more than most places in the world, so there isn't any reason for concern about desertification.

    Also, the deserts don't just appear out of nowhere in a region that is covered in forests and is not in close proximity with a dry climate, but instead, the desertification mainly takes place where the deserts are neighboring some other ecological system, and if the condition are right, they slowly move in and become larger.
