The purpose of this work is to illustrate the need for more precise analysis of issues related to soil-forming processes as services of the environment in terms of economy and practical applications. The term services of environment means the production of services by ecosystems, in the form of supplying matter, energy and information necessary for human life. The sources of production of those services in ecosystems come from their components which are in turn organized into structures. Changes in soil-forming processes in ecosystems are a consequence of physical, chemical, physiochemical and biological factors. Changes in soil-forming processes in ecosystems influence natural environment and therefore affect social and economic fields. One may argue that problems associated with preservation of soil-forming processes in ecosystems may result in many consequences in the field of economy. The estimation of the services of the environment (ecosystems) in terms of expenditures as well as consequences such as exploitation and degradation of biosphere is of significant importance.
