FAMILY LAMIACEAE: MAIN VALORISABLE MEDICINAL AND AROMATIC SPECIES IN THE ANINEI MOUNTAINS (CARAS-SEVERIN COUNTY, ROMANIA) PUBLISHEDMonica Prodan, Carmen Elena Dăneţ, Ilinca Imbrea
The Anina Mountains are situated along the western prolongation of the Semenic Mountains between the Barzava Valley at the north and the Nera Valley at the south, the Bozovici Hills, the Poneasca Valley and the superior course of the Barzava at the east, the Oravita Hills and the Lupac depression at the west. Objectives taken into account refer to the identification of medicinal and aromatic herbs and quantitative assessment of the main medicinal species identified in the area. Species identification was done using Flora României vol I-XIII (1952-1976), Flora României - Ciocârlan V. (2009) şi a Florei Europaea. Species identification was done using Flora României; the species are named after Ciocârlan (2000) and Flora Europaea (electronic edition). For the quantitative assessment we used the methodology of economic mapping of medicinal plants in the spontaneous flora indicated by Alexan et al. (1983), and Bojor (1991). This work has benefited from a grant awarded by the Romanian Ministry of Education, Research, Youth and Sport, through the National Council for Scientific Research in Higher Education (PN II IDEI no. 1077/2009, project code ID-865). Title: „Identifying medicinal and aromatic plants in the Aninei Mountains with a view to valorisation”. Project Manager: Assoc. Prof. PhD Imbrea Ilinca.
