Abstract

Five mountain ranges were chosen for a numerical determination of exposure differences for vegetation as well as for the determination of altitudinal limits of periglacial landforms (Northern Tian Shan, Southern and Central Tian Shan, Western Kunlun, Western Karakoram, North-Western Himalaya). No major floristic relationship between the different mountain ranges was found. The altitudinal differentiation indicates a distinct change of humidity from the arid centre with its elevated position of vegetation belts, as well as of solifluidal forms to the more humid borders with its depression of corresponding belts
