Biodiversity Conservation In Romania – Between Desideratum And Reality


  • Sima, Elena

    (Institute of Agricultural Economics, Romanian Academy, Bucharest)


Through the entirety of the forms of life, which are interacting among themselves and with the abiotic elements of the environment, biodiversity/biological diversity maintains the ecological processes at local, regional and global level, generating goods and services directly usable by the socio-economic system. Many stress factors (natural disasters, agricultural, industrial and mining activities, tourism activities, etc.) result in significant biodiversity diminution, endangering the ecosystem stability, with economic, scientific, aesthetic and ethic implications, which, mainly in the affected territories, call for concrete protection and preservation measures. As a research field, biodiversity conservation completes the applicative fields (agriculture, forestry, management of protected areas, fishing industry, etc), which, although they started to focus considerably on preservation, they approach it as a subsidiary aspect of other programs.
