Abstract

Spatial distribution of the parent materials, color, clay-eluviated horizon thickness, textural profile type, presence and position of the ferruginous nodules and ferricretes in the profile are analyzed at a small scale using the thematic information content of the published 1:200,000 soil map of Benin. Regional differences in the soil cover are clearly revealed. Soil provinces roughly correspond to the known geomorphologic units of Benin
