Tibet Introduction  
 
Flora and Fauna

Tibetan plateau is the highest & the largest plateau on earth, with the average elevation exceeding 13,000 feet. While the cold & rocky Southern part only allows grasslands, thick tropical forests grow in the eastern part. The vast difference in altitude & varying climatic pattern ranging form monsoon rains to severe cold & drought give rise to a diverse natural habitat for a number of plants & animals.

Around 400 species of Rhododendron alone found in the Tibetan plateau making up almost 50% of world’s total species.

Tibet makes an important landscape for China from the bio-diversity point of view as well. Over 12,000 species of vascular plants account for over half of the total genera found in China, 210 species belonging to 29 families of mammals, account for 65.90 percent of the total families found in China.

Similarly, over 532 species of birds make 70.37 percent of the total families found in China and 115 species of fishes account for 6.28 percent of China's total.
