Genesis and ecology of old and young town soils used as gardens

Genesis and ecology of old and young town soils used as gardens

Mitteilungen der Deutschen Bodenkundlichen Gesellschaft 66(2): 759-762

In the town of Lubeck, 175 profiles used as gardens or parks for 800, 100 or 25 years were sampled. These soils were greatly influenced by anthropogenic deposition, and were classed as depo(calc)regosols. Uncompacted, well aerated, nutrient-rich soils, resulting from the use of compost, digging, watering, etc., were mainly present in the old part of the town. The 800-year-old soils nearly all showed a profile depth > 150 cm; other profiles were usually 50-100 cm deep.
