Abstract

The territory that we have been studying (since 2007) is situated in the BistriţaVăratec Valley, a tributary of the Tismana River and it covers a surface of approximately 500 km2. According to the research carried out between 2007-2011, in the upper basin of the Bistriţa-Văratec, there were identified 4 plant communities, within alliance Cynosurion cristati Br.-Bl. et Tx. 1943: Anthoxantho-Agrostetum capillaris Sillinger 1933, Jurko 1969, Lolio-Cynosuretum Br.-Bl. 1936 em Tx. 1937 (Syn. Lolietum perennis Safta 1943), Festuco rubrae-Agrostetum capillaris Csűrüs-Káptalan 1964 (Syn. Festucetum rubrae-Agrostietum capillaris Horv. 1951; Festuco rubrae-Cynosuretum auct. roman., Festucetum rubrae et Agrostis capillaris auct. roman. and Rumici (acetosellae)-Agrostietum tenuis Sanda et Popescu 1981 (Syn. Agrostetum tenuis biharicum Resmeriţă 1965, 1970). Ecology, chorology, floristic composition (species richness, life forms, phytogeographical elements) as well as its economic importance for all these plants communities (characterised by 40 original phytosociological relevées) are analysed in this paper.
