As one of the important influencing factors of global and regional climate change,vegetation variation has gradually attracted scientists in the recent decades.Many studies have been undertaken in terms of climate model to investigate the effects of various vegetation covers on climate change,and many remarkable advances in the field have been achieved.Results show that vegetation variation can influence the regional precipitation,circulation and temperature by changing the surface property,such as albedo,roughness length and soil moisture,and through radiation and moisture balance etc.This paper gives a summary of the recent researches in China and abroad,especially of the effects of vegetation change on regional climate of China.The evidence reveals that the large scale degradation of vegetation leads to the increase in surface temperature,the weakening of the east Asia monsoon,the drop of rainfall and the exacerbation of North China drought.Finally,problems in the past research and keystones in future research are also pointed out.
