Stone and boulder content has a strong influence on many soil processes and is a crucial factor to take into account when estimating element pools. In this paper, the AA. present the results of a large scale inventory of the stone and boulder content of forest soils, which employed a surface penetration method (Viro's method) in 1943 plots across Sweden. A relationship was found between stone and boulder content and surface boulder frequency, but the strength of the relationship varied regionally. In some regions surface boulders may provide an indicator of stone and boulder content in the soil
