The status and the distribution of the macro- and certain of the micronutrients in selected soil profiles developed on different parent materials such as granite, quartz diorite, dacite, and marble and under varying cover such as spruce (Picea excelsa L.), scotch pine (Pinus silvestris L.), beech (Fagus silvatica L.), and grasses were investigated.

The results presented in a series of graphic illustrations indicate a distinct tendency for an accumulation of the nutrient supply in the uppermost horizons of the studied profiles.

The nutrient level is influenced by the initial capital of the elements and the alteration to which it has been subjected during soil development processes.

Interactions between the biotic and the edaphic parameters affect the distribution of the nutrients within the profiles.
