The evolution and formation mechanism of territorial space pattern is a scientific question of the study on human-earth system interaction, and it is the key premise of territorial space planning. The Geo-graphic, Standard deviation ellipse model and Spatial autocorrelation method were performed to analyze the evolution characteristics of territorial spatial pattern in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region from 2000 to 2018, and the Geographic detector was used to reveal the formation mechanism. The results show that: 1) The urban space area increased, while the area of agricultural space and ecological space decreased in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. In addition, the expansion of urban space was consistent with the contraction of agricultural space and ecological space, and the dynamic changes of territorial space accelerated. 2) The territorial space transformation of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region was frequent, and there was a significant diversity of the transfer trajectory It means that the exchange between agricultural space and ecological space and the reorganization of the internal structure of ecological space were accelerated. 3) The migration path of territorial space was dominated by the interaction between urban space and agricultural space in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. The agglomeration characteristics of urban space and agricultural space showed ‘high in the south and low in the north’, and that of ecological space were ‘high in the north and low in the south’. 4) The evolution of territorial space pattern was influenced by the joint action of physical geography and socioeconomic factors in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. The limiting effect of natural environmental conditions was gradually weakened, while the driving force of socioeconomic development level and the intensity of policy regulation played a far-reaching role. Therefore, the spatial pattern of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region can be optimized through territorial spatial planning, adjustment of industrial layout and guidance of production and life style.

Key words: land use, territorial space, spatio-temporal evolution, geographic detector, Karst area, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region
