This paper defines the relationships between geographical location (which determines macroclimatic differentiation and reflects the history of the vegetation), soils (which determine hydrolytic acidity, degree of base saturation and organic carbon content), and selected characteristics of vegetation (species richness, herb layer biomass, moss layer biomass) in one type of forest community, namely, pine forests of the Vaccinio-Piceetea class. The study area covers the major part of the European domain of pine forests, from 70.15°N (Norway) to 50.35°N (Poland) and from 12.02°E (Sweden) to 33.6°E (Russia). The results clearly point to the simultaneous effect of several different mechanisms shaping the structure of soil and the forest floor
