Registan-North Pakistan sandy desert

WWF Abstract

The sandy desert plains of this ecoregion are punctuated by stony hills and sand dunes that rise like exclamation points from the earth. Some sand dune ridges reach up to 50 feet (15 m) high. The shrubs and small trees that grow in these sandy conditions provide havens for a diversity of mammals and birds.
