Highlights: Mongolian Flora
Mongolia’s diverse and distinctive vegetation includes an important part of Asia’s plant life. Species representative of Siberia’s coniferous taiga forest, Central Asia’s steppe and desert, and the Altai and Sayan mountains all occur here. Steppe plants from Kazakhstan grow beside Manchurian steppe flowers. More than 3000 species vascular plants, 927 lichens, 437 mosses, 875 fungi, and numerous algae have been recorded. Many other species, however, remain to be classified. Mongolia’s flora includes almost 150 endemic plants (Adonis mongolica, Betula mongolica, Stipa mongolorum, Nanophyton mongolicum, Potanino mongolica) and nearly 100 relict species (Ephedra przewalskii, Keamurea songorica, Cynomorium songoricum, Iljinia regelii, Populus diversifolia, Halimodendron Halodendron, Oxytropis grubovii, Abies Sibirica, Nymphaea candida). Over 100 plant species are listed in the Mongolian Red Book as rare or endangered.
