Kleinformen von Strukturboden in den Hochlagen des Bayerischen Waldes. (Miniature forms of sorted polygons in the upper zones of "Bayerischer Wald")

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This is the first description of recently developed Erdknospen (soil buds) and Texturboden (structured soils) from the upper zones of a medium hight mountainous region in Germany. Investigations of their form, their substratum and the frost effects give evidence of their genesis as sorted polygons. The most important aspect is that of the present conditions for the further development and the preservation of these miniature forms. The swelling up of the thixotropic substratum due to humidity in summer, and the crystallization of ice granules on frosty days are of great morphogenetic importance.
