Abstract

Standardization of paleopedological nomenclature should rely on pedogenetic characteristics. Logical definitions of neo-, paleo-, recent, relict, fossil, and buried soils and horizons are presented, with criteria for their differentiation. Disharmonic intertype soils/horizons is suggested as a collective term for soils and horizons showing characteristics of both neo- and paleo-formations (the so-called genetic soil types). The last known pedogenetically effective change of climate should be fixed as a time demarcation between paleosols/paleohorizons and neo-formations. In central Europe, this corresponds with the end of the Atlantic period
