Soils formed under forest vegetation in the forest steppe zone of Russia were named by V. Dokuceaev as gray forest oils, like a transition type of soils from podzols to chernozems. In Moldova these soils formed under forest vegetation in the hilly Moldavian forests areas, named Codri, were also called gray forest soils in spite of the fact that climatic conditions, pedogenesis processes and diagnostic indicators differs from the Russian steppe. Recent soil research have established that in these soils formed in humid warm climate suitable for chernozems formation, podzolic process characterized by the formation of free iron and aluminum sesquioxides is not characteristic. Taking into account the soil formation conditions, processes that formed the investigated soils, their genetic horizons characteristics and color, it is recommended for them to be called brown soils (brunizems).
