Paropamisus xeric woodlands

WWF Abstract

If you’re traveling to the open woodlands and shrub semidesert of the Paropamisus Xeric Woodlands ecoregion, don’t forget to bring plenty of water. Found on the northern slopes of the Afghan mountains, this ecoregion has a dry climate because rains are blocked by a neighboring mountain range. Although the climate is dry, many plants and animals can be found here, including almond and pistachio trees, leopards, jackals, sandpipers, and shrikes.
