Abstract

A comparison of soil development indices, SDIs, established in chronosequences from the Ljubljana Basin (humid climate), California (Mediterranean), Pennsylvania (humid) and New Mexico (arid) suggests that the rates of soil development expressed by the indices increase with increasing precipitation, even though some individual soil properties, notably rubification, develop faster in xeric areas. Parent material composition does not seem to affect the indices significantly. The inability of soil properties to discriminate between all members of the chronosequence is attributed to the large intrinsic variability of soils
