Pamir alpine desert and tundra

WWF Abstract

The Pamir is a high mountainous plateau that is sometimes described as a "knot" because it lies at the intersection of several of Asia's great mountain ranges: the Himalaya, the Karakoram, the Hindu Kush, and the Tian Shan. This central location means that the plateau contains a great diversity of species, with representatives from several adjacent mountain regions.
