Abstract

The morphological and chemical features of upland soils derived from ophiolitic parent materials in Palawan, Philippines, are summarised from soil survey data, and compared with those on geosynclinal sedimentary rocks. Although the ophiolitic crystalline rocks are lithologically heterogeneous, the soils have similar morphologies. However their chemical characteristics differ considerably, they have markedly different agricultural and ecological characteristics, and it is essential to distinguish between them. Soil taxonomy and the FAO World Reference Base fail to distinguish between the mafic and ultramafic ophiolitic soils at subgroup level
