Abstract

The vegetal asociation Telekio-Petasitetum (Morariu 1967, Resmerita et Ratiu,
1974) is well represented in Domogled –Cerna Valley National Park, across Cerna`s valley and its main tributaries. The two enlightening species, Petasites hybridus and Telekia speciosa are characterized by their tall stem, big leaf area and a high photosynthetic efficiency. The water regime of these plants is a characteristic for the hygrophilous species, with a high water content in tissues and raised transpiration values. Due to their evolved root system and their good capacity of regeneration, the plants that have been taken in this study have an important ecological role, forming true corridors along rivers and contributing at the consolidation of river banks.
