ABSTRACT. The living conditions offered by the sterile heaps are not favourable to the development of plants, especially if the heaps have not been placated with phytosoil. But there are a small number of species showing various degrees of tolerance towards these conditions, and that manage to grow in the respective areas (Gh. Bârlea, 2008).
