La ausencia de diferencias en COT para las epocas climaticas y para la salinidad, se puede explicar por el hecho de que los suelos fueron organicos de tipo fibrist, y porque el COT es un parametro que responde de manera lenta a los cambios, y por lo tanto, se requiere de mediciones a lo largo de periodos prolongados para detectar su variacion.
The dominant suborders of Histosols reflect the extent of organic matter decomposition that has occurred within them and consist of Fibrists, Folists, Hemists, and Saprists (Table 3-5).
* Fibrists are wet, slightly decomposed Histosols often referred to as peat.
