Abstract

This study assesses the impact of differences in geomorphology on soil genesis. By means of 8 soil profiles along 2 toposequences, the impact of topographic position, climate and parent material on the soil properties is evaluated. Besides an improved understanding in the genesis of volcanic soils and its relation with geomorphology, the study is also important in view of sustainable páramo management. It is a necessary step for zonification and vulnerability mapping of the páramo soils, which is an indispensable tool for an adequate land use planning and management
