Mount Tampa - a peculiar Reserve|
Mount Tampa towers 400 m above Brasov town. Natural reserve spreading on 150 ha, Tampa is also the only landscape reserve within Brasov county.
Two rare vegetal species exclusively grow on mount Tampa : the fellow?s cross (Hepatica transsilvanica) and Bromus marcensis. On the northern side spreads a peculiar forest, gathering several species of ornamental and scientific value, such as beech, hornbeam, oak, lime, mountain elm, ash, larch, pine etc. The southern side is strongly sunny and a beat more arid, encompassing so-called steppe-eyes, where most of the planting attempts failed.
Tampa also hosts various species of birds, mammals and insects (almost 35% of the butterfly species on Romania were discovered on this area).
