Central Tibetan Plateau alpine steppe

WWF Abstract

Extremely cold temperatures and sparse vegetation make the Central Tibetan Plateau Alpine Steppe ecoregion inhospitable to human communities. Not only are there no farmers in this region, but there also aren't any nomadic herders such as those found in other parts of the Tibetan plateau. Instead, this dry alpine region provides lots of undisturbed and safe habitat for great herds of wild Tibetan antelopes (chirus), blue sheep, Tibetan gazelles, and other grazing species, as well as the predators that feed on them.
