Tibetan Plateau alpine shrub and meadows

WWF Abstract

Wet meadows give way to dry plains and cold deserts in this Central Asian ecoregion. The ecoregion is mostly treeless, but for animals that like grazing on grasses and other low-growing plants, thatÂ’s not a problem. A variety of wild grazers roam through the region, including deer and gazelles. And so do people who herd domestic grazing animals such as cattle and goats.
