    Top-soil samples were taken from four mountain forest ecosystems in the Bohemian Forest to compare the processes in European beech-mixture (Fs) and Norway spruce (Pa) dominating ecosystems. Selected plots can be grouped into two types of forest ecosystems which are conditioned by position on the natural altitudinal gradient. Several chemical features (content of organic matter, properties of humic and fulvic acids, releasable P, Ca, Mg, Fe, Al content) were compared with the species structure of oribatid mite communities in the same samples. Strict differences between both ecosystem types were discovered. Statistically significant differences were detected in Mg content (0.42 mg/g in Fs ecosystems compared to 0.30 mg/g in Pa ecosystems) and in organic matter quality (the ratio of carbon content in humic acids to carbon content in total humus acids was 0.53 in Fs ecosystems and 0.66 in Pa ecosystems) and quantity.
