This ecoregion, with few water bodies and rivers, represents the most arid part of the Transcaspian area. The arid rivers are characterized by low flow, uneven regime, and considerable fluctuations in the intensity of flow in the off-season. The fauna of inland water bodies is impoverished and mainly contains species that migrate or occasionally enter from the sea.
