  Article:   CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF FLORA AND VEGETATION OF THE TERTIARY IN THE EXTRACARPATHIAN AREA OF ROMANIA.

Authors:  RĂZVAN GIVULESCU.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  The author presents the fossil flora and vegetation of the extracarpathian regions of Romania: on one hand, the Eocene-Oligocene-Late Dacian fossil floras from the southern area, and on the other hand - the Sarmatian ones from the eastern area. It is insisted on the Sarmatian as compared to the one from Transylvania. There are important similarities with the southern area, but none as concerns the eastern one. The characteristic feature of the area comprised between the Carpathians and the Prut is the absence of the Lauraceae and the massive presence of Betulaceae. The author suggests the creation of a palaeofitogeographic and palaeoclimatic sub-province called Moldavica.
