Studies regarding the growth dynamics of some species from Artemisia genus.


The genus Artemisia include over 200 species spread throughout the world, of which 16 species are also prezent in Romania (Craciun, F. et al., 1976). The paper aims to conduct a study on the bevior in the pedoclimatic conditions of a number of 9 species of Artemisia genus in the Iasi area. Among the species studied are also 6 adventive species, of which 3 species have naturalized in the Iasi area for about 3-4 decades. These three species are supposed to come from Russia or the Middle East on the railways of some agricultural products. The observations made show that depending on the origin of each species, starting in vegetation, growing dynamic and the moment of flowering are different.
