Studies on Fe oxides have facilitated the interpretation of past and present pedogenetic processes (INDA JUNIOR & KAMPF, 2005), and the mapping and classification of soils (SANTOS et al., 2013).
Low values of Xfd probably indicate beginning pedogenetic formation of magnetic particles in soils.
Elevated proportion of clay fraction in the Bt horizon indicates the process of pedogenetic clay differentiation.
The horst-tops were colonized by tropical lush vegetation due to the local warm-humid climate, as indicated by their palynologic and plant assemblages (Del Rio, 1984; Rees et al., 2000) and the pedogenetic evidence (laterites and calcretes).
Contribution of different proton sources to pedogenetic soil acidification in forested ecosystems in Japan.
Pedogenetic changes in the quantity and distribution of textural and chemical soil constituents during thirty years.
Despite of the relative homogeinity of the pedogenetic factors (landscape, parental materials, climate, waters, vegetation), within the basin there is present a large enough variety of soil cover, thus being identified soils belonging to the seven classes: Cernisols, Luvisols, Pelisols, Hydrosols, Salsodisols, Protisols and Anthrosols.
However, the area typically has considerable differences in its characteristics, especially in regard to soil type, due to pedogenetic processes and factors of soil formation (SOUZA et al., 2008), which leads to variable productivity.
The dominant pedogenetic processes that formed the soils were the following: structure formation, organic matter accumulation, loss of bases and acidification, desilication, fast weathering, and the formation of noncrystalline (short-range order) minerals and gibbsite.
