The calcium cycle has a more definite development in forest soil than in agricultural soil. The calcium content of forest soil is constantly increasing from the additions received from forest litter. Total and replaceable calcium determinations were made on forest litter. The author expected that there would be an orderly progression of total calcium contents with reference to the successional progression of the forest types toward the climax, but the data show only a trend in this direction.
