Ordos Plateau steppe

WWF Abstract

The Ordos Plateau lies within the Great Bend of China's Yellow River, also known as Huang He. High, shifting sand dunes to the north give way to sparse scrub vegetation and forest thickets at the river margins. Although this region was once home to some rare large mammals, it has lost much of its animal and plant diversity because of heavy human use.
