2011) demonstrated that, during oxidative pedogenesis, long-term interactions between hydrology and topography influence the distribution of Fe mineral fractions in the landscapes of coastal ASS (CASS) (van Breemen and Harmsen 1975; Willett and Walker 1982; Lin and Melville 1993; Husson et al.
1995), and so the k phase glaebules cannot be regarded as the strongest indicators of aeolian dust-mediated pedogenesis in these dunes.

Similarly, the role of bioturbation (mixing by biota) within soil profiles has proved difficult to quantify, and hence its role in pedogenesis has yet to be fully established.
Unfortunately, it is now difficult to test natural pedogenesis satisfactorily because most of these floodplain backswamps on east coast Australia have already had some degree of drainage, and no sufficiently detailed pre-drainage analysis of ASS and the landscape hydrology has been undertaken.
Therefore, the choice of tree species for the afforestation of post-mining areas is an important factor that determines the duration of soil pedogenesis and successful forest ecosystem restoration [12, 13].
