Based on rock cawing,historical records and field investigation,the distribution of argali(Ovis ammon)can be divided into three stages,i.e.Stone Age(10 000~5000 years ago),5O00~50 years ago, and current distribution.At present,argali is widespread in Xinjiang,even in Lop Lake and Pamirs.The continuous distributions are in the middle Tianshan Mountains,south A1tun and Kunlun Mountains,as well as the west part of Junggar,while the others are fragmentary or seasonal distributions Argali are distrbuted at the elevation of 920- 4600 meters.As the latitude increases.it’s vertical distribution becomes low In arid areas, the distribution of argali depends on springs~and surface water,not correlated with latitude.
