Le passage des sols ferrugineux tropicaux aux sols ferrallitiques dans les regions sud-ouest du Senegal (Republique du Senegal); the transition from ferruginous tropical soils to ferrallitic soils in the south-west of Senegal (Senegal Republic)



Le passage des sols ferrugineux tropicaux aux sols ferrallitiques dans les regions sud-ouest du Senegal (Republique du Senegal); the transition from ferruginous tropical soils to ferrallitic soils in the south-west of Senegal (Senegal Republic)



African Soils = Sols Africains 6(2-3): 113-228



In southwest Senegal, there is a sharp transition from yellowish brown leached ferruginous tropical soils in the north and east to red weakly ferralitic soils in the more humid areas to the south and west. The two types of soil have developed from essentially the same parent material (a sandy clay derived from reworked late Tertiary continental deposits) under similar conditions of relief and vegetation.
