Overview

Grasslands ecosystems occur in regions that are too dry for forests but that have sufficient soil water to support a closed herbaceous plant canopy that is lacking in deserts. Thus, temperate grasslands usually start in areas with 25–100 cm of annual precipitation. About 32% of the Earth's surface is covered with grasslands. In Mongolia, grassland or pastureland accounts for around 70% of the land territory. By a common definition, Mongolian rangeland encompasses an extensive variety of ecosystems, including high mountains, mountain forests, mountain steppe, steppe, desert steppe, desert, alluvial meadows, and lowlands.
