A brief account of the typology of the main ferrallitic and tropical ferruginous soils of the Central African Republic



A brief account of the typology of the main ferrallitic and tropical ferruginous soils of the Central African Republic



Cahiers ORSTOM, Serie Pedologie 10(1): 59-75



The new typological terminology proposed by Chatelin and Martin is applied to soils of the Central African Republic. Twelve pedological units, defined as "Great Series" are described. The general trend is towards ferrallitisation, with varying degrees of morphological and geochemical differentiation.
