Soil properties have been shown to partially explain tree species distribution in tropical forests. Locally, species turnover across space can result not preference; Subcanopy; Torus-translation only from edaphic heterogeneities but also from limited seed dispersal. To characterize the contribution of each process, contact areas between contrasted soil . In the present study, we aimed to test species and species assemblage responses to a sharp edaphic discontinuity in a tropical forest  tree community.
