The Kavir Biosphere Reserve is located – together with the Touran biosphere reserve - in the Anatolian Iranian Desert. The Kavir plain mainly covers flood plains and low mountain ranges. Apart from arid and semi-arid desert vegetation, steppe communities, salted and sandy lands are characteristical for the biosphere reserve. Including nomads, there are about 35,000 people living in the biosphere reserve (2002) belonging to different tribes. Seasonal grazing by nomads’ livestock takes place in the core area. Due to the unfavorable climate conditions, there are no economic activities in the buffer zone, however grazing, agriculture, horticulture and handicrafts are important sources of income in the transition area.
