Abstract

The impacts of acidic deposition depend strongly on the specific chemistry of each soil and the nutrient cycles within each ecosystem. To provide perspective on the general characteristics, patterns, and diversity of forest soils in the South, the general geomorphology of the region and the major features of the most important and extensive soil groups are described herein.
