The town is an area differentiated ecologically both in respect of biotope and biocenosis. The area of the former University of Agriculture situated in Słowackiego and Papieża Pawła VI streets is a specific ecological system. It has peculiar features of urban environment such as much warmer and drier microclimate, and the soils are significantly converted. The aim of numerous studies is to determine plant communities and make an inventory of the dendroflora and bryoflora in this area. For this purpose, 213 phytosociological records were taken in 2006 and 2007 and dendroflora and bryoflora were determined. The results of the studies will be presented in several publications. In the examined area 39 comprehensive samples of soil were taken from the depth of 0–25 cm. Their pH, the content of CaCO3 and their granulometric composition were determined. The characteristic features of most soils are alkaline reaction and a differentiated content of CaCO3. In the surface layer of a soil, light loamy sands, heavy loamy sand and light loam dominate. They contain a significant amount of soil skeleton (remains of building work). The investigated area is "an island of heat", as it is sheltered from all directions by dense afforestation and buildings. These microclimatic conditions are favourable to the development of thermophilous plant communities.
