Description:
Mongolia’s taiga is located at the southern edge of the biome in Eurasia. It is also the most southerly location of reindeer husbandry in the world. Mongolian reindeer husbandry occurs within the Shishged River watershed of the Altai-Sayan, the largest mountain range in southern Siberia. Straddling the Republic of Tuva on the Russian/Mongolian border, it is recognized as an area of global importance for terrestrial biodiversity.
