Abstract

Soils with cool, moist winters and relatively warm, dry summers, a Mediterranean climate, are recognized as having a xeric moisture regime in Soil Taxonomy, and are classified mostly in taxa that use the formative element xer in the name. In the western part of the United States, soil series with either a xeric moisture regime or an aridic regime bordering on a xeric moisture regime make up more than 48,640,000 ha. They are classified in the orders of Mollisols, Aridisols, Alfisols, Inceptisols, Entisols, Vertisols, Andisols and Ultisols
