Taxonomic Soil Regions

Kellogg (1930) divided the state into three broad soil taxonomic regions, including from south to north, the Gray-Brown Forest (Alfisols), Transitional (tension zone), and Podzols (Spodosols) (Fig. 2.9). The soil maps of Wisconsin from 1927 through 1968 (Chap. 2) were based on the associations of soil series. The 1993 map of Madison and Gundlach (Fig. 2.12) was similar to Hole’s 1968 map (Fig. 2.10) except that the legend divided the soils by geographic region.
