We tested the importance of seven edaphic variables as predictors in plant species distribution models in addition to topo-climatic variables. We found that soil pH and nitrogen content showed the highest contribution to model amelioration, more particularly for species with low specific leaf area, and acidophilic preferences, tolerating low soil pH and high humus content.
