Abstract

According to the geobotanical research carried out between 2000-2012, in the
south-western part of Romania, there were identified one plant community - Clinopodio vulgaris-Pteridietum aquilinii Dihoru 1975, edified by Pteridium aquilinum (l.) Kuhn. - colonizing species. The fern Pteridium aquilinum (L.) Kuhn, known under the names ''wolf`s clothes'' and ''field fern'', is an example of a plant very well adapted, which ensures its being widespread as compared to other cormophytes. Wolf` clothes is a colonising and invasive species (Pysek, P., 1995) which fits very well to agroecosystems and natural, degraded ecosystems, being almost impossible to combat. In the south-western of Romania this plant community meets in the Capatanii Mountains, Parang Mountains, Valcan Mountains, Lotru Mountains, Semenic Mountains, Aninei Mountains, Cernei Mountains, Tarcu Mountains, Godeanu Mountains and SubCarpathian area of Oltenia.
