Abstract

Băiţa Craciunesti area is situated on the territory of 3 localities: Peştera, Ormindea and Crăciuneşti, which belong to the locality of Băiţa, Hunedoara County, about 27 km North from Deva.This project aimed to identify and monitor rare endemical endangered and jeopardized plant species of Nature 2000 plant communities and habitats that lived in the quarry and nearby, since it is placed close to the contact limit of the protected area ROSCI0110- Băiţa Hills. In terms of flora a number 360 taxons have been identified, which shows the floristic richness of the area and a low human impact regarding the activity of a mining quarry. Both in the area and nearby the quarry a number of rare, endemic, endangered and vulnerable species have been identified. In terms of phytocoenology we have identified and analyzed a number of 38 plant communities. Some of them are mentioned for the first time in this area. Several types of habitats have been identified and their conservation status has been noted. The permanency of grasslands and forest ecosystems across quarry has been observed and analyzed. These ecosystems should be viewed as dynamic ecosystems.
