Abstract

A method for assessing their relative importance is developed here, based on soil richness-area relationships. A power function relating the number of samples and the number of soil types is a good description of the richness-area relationship for an eastern North Carolina study area. This case study shows that intrinsic variability within homogeneous landscape units is more important in determining the total pedodiversity of the study area than is the extrinsic variability associated with measurable difference in topography, parent material, and vegetation/land use
