ABSTRACT
The present work aims to illustrate a case study, carried out based on theoretical and methodological grounds, which analyzes the spatial distribution, the features, and the functions of the green areas of the plain units of Dâmboviţa County. The different categories of green areas present in the zone under analysis accomplish multiple functions (ecological, social, esthetic, economic). The ecological function has a major role in the protection and improvement of the environment (the improvement of the urban microclimate - moderation of the excessive heat and attenuation of the temperature variations during the day and during the night, atmospheric ionization; purification of the atmosphere – through important contributions as far as the chemical, physical and bacteriological purification of the atmosphere is concerned; lowering of the phonic pollution, improvement of the land’s water retention capacity, preservation and perpetuation of the biodiversity). The green areas of Târgovişte Plain are represented by the parks: Chindia, Mitropolie, Mihai Bravu – in Târgovişte, Dalles – in Bucşani, Cantacuzino – in Ciocăneşti, Văcăreşti - in the homonymous locality. In statistics, the forests contained by the green area have been introduced in the total surface of the green area (the forests of Nucet, Priseaca, Boteni, Bucşani). In the zone under analysis, numerous secular trees have been identified, which have been declared natural monuments (oak, walnut tree, locust tree, plane tree, larch tree, spruce fir, chestnut tree, ash tree).
