Abstract (in english)
   The main soil units represented in the Šumava National Park and Protected Landscape Area are as follows: Lithosols, Rankers, Dystric Cambisols, Cambic Podzols, Podzols, Dystric Planosols, Stagno-gleyic Planosols, Fluvisols, Gleysols (very often Histic Gleysols) and Histosols. Outstanding phenomenon of Bohemian Forest (the Šumava Mts.) is an extensive occurrence of semihydromorphic and hydromorphic soils (especiall Histosols) at relatively high elevations (on the plateau-like central parts of the mountains). Altitudinal zonality of soils is quite distinct, but the individual vertical belts are situated higher than in other mountains of Czech Republic. The impact of mesoclimatic factors is assumed to be reason of the above mentioned phenomena
