Abstract

Climate changes have a huge impact on the ecosystems biodiversity changing the relationship among species, which react individually. In Romania, hazelnut (Corylus genus) is a vulnerable species due to its high genetical vulnerability, which require special attention. Thus, recently has been recorded an increased demand for turkish hazelnut for its ecological and economical importance. It has a rapid growth rate, large root system and high tolerance to biotic and abiotic constrainers (pest and diseases, low temperatures, etc.). Moreover it has pharmaceutical benefits, while his fruits has a high oil content. The climate changes induce changes in the species diversity in specific areas and let the door open for new species as an adaptability pattern.
