The issue uses ecological footprint method to research 7 target counties of Beijing and gains the per capita ecological deficit after 12 percent areas deduction for biological diversification. We found that target region has a magnified trend of ecological deficit and then, we try to offer some proposals about how to develop the mountainous counties.
