Abstract
Within mountain environments, it is possible to find a huge variety of soils in relatively small areas. However, the provision of ecosystem services is not the same among the different mountain ranges of the world. Factors that contribute to the great variety of soils (pedodiversity) at local level include altitudinal differences and their associated climate belts from the lowlands to mountain tops, the roughness of the topography and the lithological substrate.
