Abstract: Dongting and Wenzhou are two well-known citrus production centers in the Northern Song (960-1127) and Southern Song (1127–1279) Dynasties respectively. In the history, there are many citrus production records in the two places. Dongting tangerine and Wenzhou mandarin are often found in the literature and spoken language. Based on the historical records, this paper examines Donating’s Location, mandarin and tangerine’s name, and tries to provide a new historical basis for citrus production center’s southward shift from the angle of environmental history, especially the climate change.
