ternational Union of Soil Sciences to arrive at a common language for describing soils. Due to their age and the presence of a hot, humid climate, many tropical soils are deeply and ho-mogenously weathered. In many people’s minds, the typical soils of Latin America are red in colour, deeply weathered and under tropical rain forests.

Soil quality in the tropics must be considered a component of an integrated natural resource management framework (INRM). Based on quantitative topsoil attributes and soil taxonomy, the fertility capability soil classification (FCC) system is probably a good starting point to . ). Conversion of tropical forest to agricultural land-use systems does not only decrease biodiversity and contribute to climate change (Danielsen et al., ) but also alters soil fertility and soil physical properties in the newly es-tablished land-use systems (Dechert et al., ; Klinge et al., ).Cited by:

A catena is the sequence of soils from hilltop to valley floor. The soil down a hill slope is rarely uniform. Soil eroded from the top of the slope tends to accumulate near the bottom. Runoff water tends to infiltrate more in the flatter areas at the foot of the slope, and encourage more plant.

This contribution deals with the soils of the humid and sub-humid tropics, i.e. the inter-tropical belt with a dry season of maximum 3 months.

Soil formation and weathering in this environment are intense. Physical and physicochemical processes lead to deep weathering zones, high clay contents, and the destruction of primary mineral latticeFile Size: KB.

ABSTRACT. Soil texture determines the surface area in a volume of soil, which influences the of availability nutrients, water, and soil organic carbon in an ecosystem. The oxic horizon only has 10% weatherable minerals in the sand, silt or clay components, all the other minerals have weathered to elements.

This is very different from other soils which have weatherable minerals in the % range. Oxic horizons are found mostly in humid tropical and subtropical regions and is designated as the Bo horizon.

With the above in view, this book has as its focus the development of an introductory soil science text, which covers in great detail a broad spectrum of the elements of soil science to include: soil formation, the morphological, physical, chemical properties, soil pedogenic processes, soil classification, and special aspects like soil biology 4/5(1).

We analyzed soil erosion control in the humid tropics. • More than measurements of soil loss were compiled. • Whatever the land use, most soil losses come from landscape elements of bare soil.

• Soil erosion control is provided whenever vegetation is developed enough. • Conservation practices can reduce soil loss by up to 99%.Cited by: Soils are a function of the five soil-forming factors: climate, organisms, relief, parent material, and time.

Each of these factors range on a continuum, so the different soils of the world number in the thousands. 1) Describe the main characteristic of each of the soil orders.
