The Bohemian forest covers the highest peaks of the granitic Bohemian Mass and divides the river systems of the Elbe and Danube. Spruce Picea forests dominate, with some mixed and deciduous forest. The main land-use in the Mühl valley is arable agriculture although some wet meadows, dry grasslands and raised bogs remain. The area is used for winter sports.
The IBA is important for species characteristic of both forest and mixed agriculture and grassland.
