The Pearl River delta thus was not created by natural processes, and had not been simply waiting for Chinese to migrate from the north and reclaim it for agriculture.
Rather, the creation of the Pearl River delta and its later emergence as the densely populated, agriculturally rich core of South China was a contingent, rather than naturally determined, historical outcome.
