Despite the strong development of the science of soil in recent years, the format of the presented soil data is extremely diverse in different countries. The problem lies just not only in the format of the presented data but also in the scientific language used. Such local variability is hindering teaching of soil science in the international context and access to data necessary for the regional (European scale) interpretations. Despite the passage of years and the development of unified European system of soil description it is still not used in a satisfactory manner among teaching staff at EU universities.
