Central Afghan Mountains xeric woodlands

WWF Abstract

If you traveled to the Central Afghan Mountains Xeric Woodlands ecoregion today, youÂ’d see mostly dry shrubland where once there were forests. A variety of human pressures have degraded this ecoregion, which forms a transitional zone from the southern desert at lower elevations to the upper slopes of the Afghan Mountains. But wildlife sanctuaries and pockets of native habitats still provide opportunities to see the biodiversity this ecoregion is known for--pistachio trees, jungle cats, wild pigs, rare cranes, and more.
