Biodiversity is not a stranger term to any social category (from ordinary peasant to political class) and became the main topic in any actual problem. Climate change is beginning to affect biodiversity and how it is expected it will cause a significant loss of biodiversity in the near future. Key drivers of change of biodiversity are land use change (including urbanization and land abandonment, climate change, fragmentation, etc nitrogen deposition.). Fertilization is itself a method of reducing the phytodiversity of meadows. Our experience was conducted in the village Ocoale from Gîrda de Sus commune, Alba county and seeks organic fertilization effect on phytodiversity of mountain meadows. Manure fertilizer is recommended to be used on permanent grassland with a high specific richness, but should be given in small quantities. The organic growth contributing to biodiversity conservation and regeneration of soil, water and other resources is urgently needed to meet the widest possible range of socio-economic challenges and environmental.
