Soil acidification processes are the main factor influencing the distribution of different Al forms in forest soils. The intensity of these processes is given by different stand conditions and anthropic activity. This paper describes the influence of four selected stand factors on the distribution of basic soil characteristics and two Al forms in forest soils of the Jizerské hory Mts. Altitude, liming, soil type and forest cover type are studied as selected factors. Distribution of most soil characteristics in the organic horizon, including organically bound Al, is influenced by the altitude. Distribution of mobile Al form is mainly influenced by liming. In the mineral horizon, no decisive factor affecting the distribution of variables was found. Cartograms of spatial distribution of pH, mobile Al form and total Ca content documenting their spatial relationships are shown.
