Helanshan montane conifer forests

WWF Abstract

Isolated mountains often seem like islands in the sky, rising up from semi-arid desert regions and providing habitat for plants and animals found nowhere else in the area. This is the case with the mountains of the Helan Shan Montane Coniferous Forests ecoregion. The region has not been well-studied, but one endemic pika species (a small, rabbitlike mammal) is known to be from the Helan Shan Mountains area.
