About this book

This region within the former USSR borders on Iran and Afghanistan and includes both deserts and arid mountains. It is an important region for historical biogeography, as a corridor and filter between the Mediterranean region, the Middle East and the great deserts of Asia. This book is the first to bring data on the biogeography and conservation of Turkmenistan to the general scientific community.
