The application of the FAO and US soil taxonomy systems to saline soils in relation to halophytic vegetation in SE Spain


The AA. classify 23 pedons from 6 salt marshes in SE Spain. Samples were taken under 7 different halophyte plant communities, and represent saline soils occurring under a semiarid Mediterranean climate. The results suggest imrovements to the FAO and USDA classification systems based on clearer relationships between soils and vegetation. By utilizing the data obtained to classify each soil according to the different classification systems and their revisions, it is possible to evaluate which classification best reflects the conditions of the soils and the type of plant communities in the saline areas
