Kazakh steppe

WWF Abstract

The Khazakh Steppe is the largest dry steppe region in the world. Similar to the prairies of North America, steppes are grassland communities with little or no trees. In the Khazakh Steppe, you'll find hundreds of different species of plants, all of them adapted to regular droughts, strong winds, fires, and grazing. And you'll find a rich diversity of hardy mammals equally well-adapted to this environment, including saiga antelopes, corsac foxes, and steppe marmots.
