Abstract: Academician Huang Bingwei, as an outstanding geographer, devoted his whole life to the research on integrated physical geography. He had made major progress in the fields of physio-geographical regionalization in China, natural potentiality in agricultural production, global environmental change, earth system science and regional sustainable development. Meanwhile, he realized that there were several weaknesses and shortcomings in geographical studies and promoted the reformation of geography. The new ways proposed by Academician Huang in the physical geography profoundly influenced the development of geography in China.
