Bukovské kopce (Bukovské Hills) Nature Reserve

It is a beech wood fragment in the centre of the production forest with predominant coniferous trees, located 2.5 km north-east of Klikov. In the Třeboňsko PLA, it is one of the last remnants of the blossomy beach wood with the typical flora and fauna and serves as a sanctuary for significant populations of disappearing plant species. The beech wood is rich in its herb layer. The tree layer is predominated by the sturdy European beeches of various ages with scattered Norway spruce, sycamore and European ash. The occurrence of some rarer species of invertebrates, especially beetles the existence of which depend on the natural beech woods, is expected here. For instance, the European red-bellied clerid (Thanasimus formicarius) and Buprestis rustica were observed here. Given the small area of the reserve surrounded by the cultural stands, common species of vertebra occur here. Also the black woodpecker (Dryocopus martius) and common raven (Corvus corax) build their nests here. The reserve is one of few sites in the Třeboň region where the stock dove (Columba oenas) is nesting.
