The impact of soil cover organization on the forest community has been studied in a 19-ha tract at Piste de St Elie station in French Guiana. 195 species each represented by at least 10 individuals were chosen from records of the position, diameter at breast height (dbh) and precise identification by botanical sampling of 12104 ligneous plants (dbh ≥ 10 cm).Spatial variations in the soil were mapped using the method proposed by Boulet et al. (1982). The soil mapping units correspond to the… 
Geomorphic control of rain-forest floristic composition in French Guiana: more than a soil filtering effect?
TLDR
The results confirm the hypothesis of a strong relationship between geomorphology, soil properties and forest composition in French Guiana rain forest and reinforce the alternative hypotheses linking geomorphological landscapes to long-term forest change under the control of historical processes that shaped forest diversity.

Species Responses to Edaphic Heterogeneity in Semi-Deciduous Forests from the Congo Basin
TLDR
Investigation of the way edaphic heterogeneity affects species occurrences and abundances in sites harboring semi-deciduous forests in the central Congo Basin showed that species react in different ways according to the considered soil.
