Abstract: Agricultural traits of Apuseni Mountains in the Post-Communist Period. Apusenii Albei Case-Study. Our study looks at the evolution of agriculture in a specific region of Western Carpathian Apuseni Mountains (Romania) called Apusenii Albei, following the fall of communism up until the 2010 Agricultural Census, with a focus on livestock farming, a basic mountain agricultural activity. In most cases, the products derived from this type of agriculture are sufficient only to cover the food needs of families. Statistical data shows that livestock (sheep, cattle and pigs) population decreased during the period in focus, 1992-2010. On the other side, the age structure of the labour force employed in agriculture reflects the dominance of the elderly. Overall, mountain agriculture has a subsistence character, which is detailed in the paper.
Key-Words: agriculture, livestock farming, Apuseni Mountains, Apusenii Albei, subsistence farming.
