Abstract:

This paper present and discussed the results of the monitoring of two ecological factors, the temperature and the relative humidity monitorised during winter 2014 -2015, in an ecological station in the in the north-western area of Leaota Mountains. In this station, three polls were located in areas with limestone forming mesovoid shallow substratum (MSS), also called shallow subterranean habitats(SSHs). The first survey has 1m deepth, the second has 0.75m depth and the third was drilled up to 0.5m depth. In each survey was placed a datalogger above a Barber trap, wich recorded continuously for the winter 2014-2015 relative humidity and temperature. The values of this abiotic parameters were collected on every twelve hours. The continuous data collection on ecological parameters mentioned before is a first for Romania.

Keywords:

mesovoid shallow substratum, MSS, subteranean shallow habitats, SSHs, relative humidity, temperature, scree, Leaota.
