Situated in territories of three soums (sub-provinces) of Khentii aimag (province) and one soum of Dornod aimag, Ereen Range is rich in its biodiversity including three species of coniferous forest: Krilov’s pine, Dahurian larch, and Chekanovskii larch that are only found on the Range, but not in the rest of the Mongolian territory.  Out of these species, the Dahurian larch (Pinus daurica) is listed in the Red Book of Mongolia.  The Range is distributed by the wildlife species such as musk deer (Moschus moschiferus) and moose (Alces alces) included in the Mongolian Red Book.  Ereen Range is one of the target conservation spots designated in the management plan for OBNP.
