Abstract

This study addresses past and present factors forming soils and the distribution of soil and humus types in the ancient woodlands of Hald Ege. The methods used include soil mapping, detailed soil profile description and physical and chemical analysis of soil samples in connection with vegetation data. The results reveal that present-day soils are spatially variable, with podzols and arenosols being the most common. Some soil patches with strong podzolisation in areas with arenosols could be explained neither by present-day vegetation nor by differences in the soil properties investigated. It is concluded that these pedogenetic features formed more than 120 years ago
