The approach consists in proposing an assessment method regarding landscape typologies and components, applied inComana Natural Park, located 20 km south of Bucharest, in Giurgiu County. The research methodology is focused onassessing the share of the individual landscape components in each type of landscape identified. Thus, the componentsof the landscape are grouped in a tabular analysis into two broad categories: natural and anthropogenic, with specificsubcategories: relief, soil, water, vegetation and sunlight for the natural category; infrastructure and architecture forthe anthropogenic one. Each subcategory varies depending on the type of landscape, e.g. vegetation varies from forestto agricultural or palustrine. Following the assessment of the components, the anthropic impact level and the diversityindex result for each type of landscape. Within the analysis, six types of landscape have been identified: forest,palustrine, agricultural, fallow, old rural, recent rural. After assessing the frequency of the landscape components twocategories have been identified: common components (frequently found) and specific components (found only inparticular cases). Both groups include natural, anthropic or mixed elements. The study brings in new approaches inidentifying and assessing the determining factors in terms of landscape identity and typology, deepening the relationsbetween the different components of the landscape.
