Our research was focused on the activity of cellulolytic microorganisms, but we also highlighted the main species involved in this process, such as the fungi in the soils of spontaneous mountain pastures in 14 locations from Caras-Severin County. The main locations are: Zlatita (C1), Oravita (C2), Anina (C3), Valiug (C4), Bigar (C5), Cuptoare (C6), Garana (C7), Semenic Piatra Goznei (C8), Semenic Station (C9), Barbosu (C10), Eftimie Murgu (C11), Valea Pai (C12), Carasova (C13) and Carasova livada (C14). The dominant species of gramineous plants in these grasslands was A. tenuis L. The experiments took place in laboratory conditions. The isolation of the species and genera of bacteria and fungi was performed on specific growth media for each microbial group, respectively. According to the results obtained, the activity of cellulolytic microorganisms in the tested soils (the range of microbial species involved and the genera of fungi) is generally limited.
