Geography in the New Romania

Auteur :
GASTESCU, P.

Description :
The Danube Delta is very large with diverse resources which have been intensively exploited during the modern period. It is now of great interest to conservationists with 280 species of birds. The origin of the delta is considered and its development is traced from the initial offshore bar, referring to the writings of the classical scholars and other sources. Since the revolution of 1989, the intensive exploitation has stopped and the delta is now a Biosphere Reserve. The reserve is described and principles for management are discussed.
