Title: Recreation conflict potential and management in the northern/central Black Forest Nature Park

Author: Mann, C.; Absher, J. D.;

Date: 2008

Source: Journal of Environmental Planning and Management 51(3): 363-380.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: This study explores conflict in recreational use of the Black Forest Nature Park (BFNP) by six different nature sports groups as a function of infrastructure, forest management and other users. A multi-step, methodological triangulation conflict model from US recreation management was applied and tested in the Park. Results from two groups, hikers and mountain bikers, are analysed in depth. The main conflict potentials were due to infrastructure and value conflicts. These were influenced by various visitor characteristics such as resource attachment, experiences, activity-style, expectations and motives. Results of quantitative data analysis were further interpreted by interviews with agency and group leaders. This methodological combination reveals a robust understanding of recreation conflict and management in the BFNP.

Keywords: recreation management, conflict analysis, nature sport, social profile, methodological triangulation
