Soils, Geomorphology, and Land Use of the Southeastern United States

Abstract

The response of southern pine forests to acidic deposition is determined by acidic deposition itself, plant genetics, and ecosystem dynamics. A major dimension of ecosystem dynamics is the nature, distribution, and ultimately the ability of the below-ground matrix (soils) to ameliorate acidic deposition. Other portions of this volume (e.g., Richter and Markewitz, Chapter 8) deal with the specifics of soil response to acidic deposition. This chapter is presented as a regional overview of relevant climatic patterns, the most extensive soil groups, and general land-use patterns, grouped by major geomorphic regions, that encompass the southern pine forests of North America.
