 Countrygoer Europe: The Bohemian Forest
The National Park Authority, concerned about environmental impact of traffic in their National Park - including the impact of exhaust emissions on the ecology of the area - has, over the last few years, pursued a policy of gradually restricting traffic, eliminating unsightly roadside parking and even closing some cul-de-sac forest roads to traffic.
Close co-operation between the two National Parks is most graphically illustrated by the foot and cycle-only frontier crossing at Bucina (terminus of the Bavarian bike bus) where you can either cycle into the Czech Republic or walk 500 metres to catch the Šumava National Park bus to the mountain resort of Kvilda.
Many of the quiet lanes and forest roads have remained closed to traffic since the National Park was created in 1991, and there are over 135km of traffic free cycle trails as well as an extensive network of quiet roads.

The composition and diversity of the bryophyte flora of four 13-yr-old windthrow gaps and their adjacent forest stands was studied in the Bavarian Forest National Park, south eastern Germany.
The forest floor of cleared gaps is heavily disturbed which promotes the development of a dense cover of grass.
It is suggested that the higher diversity in unmanaged gaps is mainly due to the formation of additional habitats (treefall pits and mounds) while most of the forest floor and its vegetation remains intact.
