Abstract The work contains an overview on the results of the national wetland inventory project carried out in Romania in 1997 – 2000 period. Using a standard file for wetland characterization there were gathered recent and historical data on the ecological, legal, administrative etc. status of several dozens of sites. The available information was analyzed in order to select those wetlands from Romania that are eligible for inclusion into the "List of Wetlands of International Importance". Based on the results of the analyses there have been selected 30 wetlands of prior conservative interest, out of which12 could fulfill the criteria for Wetlands of International Importance.
