WWF Abstract

If you think that the Sahara Desert is thousands of square miles of nothing but sand, you will want to take a closer look at this ecoregion. The Tibesti-Jebel Uweinat Montane Xeric Woodlands ecoregion, which is located in the center of the Sahara, is home to a diversity of animals ranging from gerbils to cheetahs. The plants here are equally diverse, with rich grasslands and Mediterranean-like communities containing figs, lavender, and many other unexpected species.
