AbstractProtected area managers, policy makers and stakeholders now have a guide to management decisions that extends across landscapes and borders. To do this, we: generated the first alps–wide vegetation classification and map using existing datasets from NSW, Victoria and the ACT. identified iconic landscape features, their associated biodiversity values, and the threats to their condition. used the MCAS–S decision–support tool, to combine maps of iconic features and their threats to pinpoint areas of high natural value under high and low levels of threat.
