The AA. examined the variation of soil properties with altitude in a soil catena of an inter-tropical mountain range, Fan Si Pan Mountain, in the north of Vietnam. It is observed that the soil carbon mineralization depends not only on temperature and organo-metallic complexes that stabilize the non labile carbon pool but also is controlled by the pedogenetic process, which is linked with the vegetal ecosystem change with altitude
