Article Title: Gis Quantitative Assessment Of 1990-2006 Deforestations Whitin Romanian Natural Protected Areas

Abstract: Sustainability implies conservation, as part of the goal to preserve for the future generations a part of the current environment in a pristine state. This condition implies that human impacts must not be allowed in their perimeter, as they affect the carrying capacity of ecological systems, but also the fact that only those sites where the environment is in an almost natural condition can acquire protection. The present study takes into account one of the main drivers of global changes, i.e. land cover and use alterations, and, using CORINE data, attempts to assess the extent of deforestations during the two periods covered by these data within the perimeter of natural protected areas. Results indicate that all natural protected areas, regardless of their geographical location, have been affected by recent deforestations, questioning the effectiveness of their protection.
Keywords: cover and use changes, CORINE, conservation, natural protected areas, global changes.
