ABSTRACT
The location of the area of the two communes in the interference space of Getic Subcarpathians with Făgăraş Mountains imposed along time a variety regarding the land use. Because in the last decades it has produced the accentuated spatio-temporal dynamics of different categories of the land use from this area, the present paper aims to analyze which are the factors upon which these modificationswere based, and especially what type of mark has been left in the quality and functionality of the environment. The evaluation modality of the land use dynamics due to the human impact, consists in the application of some synthetic al indexes which characterize the degree of environmental transformation from a historical perspective. The application and analysis of the indexes in two different periods, 1980 and 2005, have been possible by obtaining and comparing the data and information from different sources (digitization on topographical maps and orthophotomaps, statistical data, informations from the dataset geo-spaţial and Corine Land Cover). This analysisledd to the spatialization and intensity of the transformations induced by the dynamics of land use changes in the Subcarpathian rural landscape, as well as the establishment of landscapes’ artificiality from this area.
