A large, mountainous area in the central-southern Alps. Half of the area is covered by woodlands, mainly spruce Picea abies, while higher areas are dominated by alpine grasslands, bushes (Pinus, Rhododendron, Alnus, Juniperus), rocky areas and glaciers. Cattle-rearing, forestry and tourism are the dominant land-uses.
The area is important for gamebirds, raptors and five out of the 10 species of the Eurasian high-montane biome.
