Biomorphic analysis is the study of the macro- and micro-remains of organisms (biomorphs) in the context of the conditions of their origin. Biomorphic analysis can indicate modern and past conditions of pedogenesis and reveal evolutionary trends in individual soils and pedosediments or more widely in the whole soil cover. As examples, samples were studied from soil profiles representing different climatic subzones of the Russian Plain. The results show that biomorphic analyses can provide information that is otherwise unobtainable and can elucidate some controversial questions of soil genesis and cultural changes
