Article Title:Data on two new marshes “Mlaştinile seci” and 82N marsh from site natura 2000 Gutâi-Creasta Cocoşului, Gutâi Mountains (Maramureş, România)
Authors:Vasile Timur Chiş
Abstract:This paper is a description of two new oligotrophic marshes of Gutâi Mountains.These oligotrophic
marshes are found in Site Natura 2000 Gutâi-Creasta Cocoşului (RO CSI 0089), under the Gutâiul Mic Peak 1392m (The Three Apostoles, The Armenian Stones), in the middle of beech tree forests (Fagus silvatica). The wetlands formed in depressions resulting from landslides which are now stabilized. The “Mlaştinile seci” marsh (Poiana Meselău) (Chiş V. T., 2007) lies in the production unit III, Mara Forest Administration, arranging unity 81N, at an altitude of 1170 m, exp.E, and has a surface of 2,7ha. The marsh is protruding and in the centre you can see the traces of a former lake almost clogged, where there are small water meshes.The swamp is cut in two by a stream that passes close by the middle of it. The second marsh lies at about 200m in the arranging unit 82N at an altitude of 1160m, and has a surface of 0,4ha. Following the researches conducted we identified 26 plant
species in the two marshes. The “Mlaştinile seci” marsh is an oligotrophic peat bog with Carex limosa (cod R5408), in the central area, fact for which has a very big conservative role. Due to the high consrvative value of the “Mlaştinile seci” marshes, I propose that this area should be strictly protected in the Site Natura 2000 Gutâi-Creasta Cocoşului. In the Habitats Directive and the Government Law no. 57/20.06.2007, this area correspnds to community interest habitat whose conservation requires the denomination by Special Areas of Conservation, code 7140 - Transition marshes and quaking bogs.
