Abstract We report on a new product for linking ecological science to planning for koala (Phascolartos cinereus) conservation: "Planning Guidelines for Koala Conservation and Recovery. AGuide to Best Planning Practice" (McAlpine et aI., 2007, available at httpJ/ These planning guidelines ("The Guidelines") arose from a research project aimed at quantifying the impact of landscape change on koala populations and recognition of the need for practical tools to integrate ecological information into planning decisions. The Guidelines focus on the urban and peri-urban regions of Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, although the general principles apply equally to rural areas
