Abstract

Environmental law has proven itself to be a major challenge to all traditionalbranches of law, given its “horizontal” perspective and functioning, by encompassingelements and institutions from almost all of them, and by offering new insights andapproaches to long consecrated concepts and juridical mechanisms.The relation between civil law, one of the oldest fields of regulation of any legalsystem, and environmental law, a creation of the late XXth century, have proven itself to benot only intriguing and original, but also necessary, in view of the creation of the juridicalstructures fit to face the imperatives of the social, scientific and economic developmentscurrently in course. By interfering with elementary concepts, such as property right andpatrimony, environmental law has brought up the opportunity of creating new juridicaltheoretical structures, corresponding to the actual necessities of the beginning of the XXIstcentury.This paper proposes construct following these lines, the environmental patrimony,having as theoretical models both the concept of patrimony, consecrated by civil law, andcommon or natural heritage, as accepted in international law. As practical aspects, we turnedto the environmental protection mechanisms already in existence, thus to give a morecomplete and functional structure as possible.
