This booklet goals to elucidate this place via describing and evaluating diverse platforms and comparing them within the context of the realm Reference Base (WRB) for Soil assets. The latter used to be manage to solve those difficulties by way of developing a global 'umbrella' method for soil correlation. All soil scientists should still then classify soils utilizing the WRB in addition to their nationwide platforms.

These mixed systems share the advantages, but also the disadvantages, of both traditional and artificial terminology. SOIL CLASSIFICATIONS 25 It is difficult to say which kind of terminology is better. Artificial terminology causes less confusion, and gives an impression of a ‘more scientific’ approach; consequently most classifications now mainly use artificial soil names. Comparing soil classifications In this book we provide short summaries of soil classifications. To present the structure of various soil classifications we use a system proposed by Berlin et al (1973) and adapted for pedology by Williams and Ortiz-Solorio (1981).

The working hypothesis originates from THE STRUCTURES OF SOIL TAXONOMIES 39 a seminal paper of Beckett and Bie (1978) who showed that many soil maps have attributes that conform to power law distributions including: (i) map scale–area surveyed; (ii) standard line density–scale dependency; (iii) sampling density–mapped area; (iv) hierarchic taxonomic level used according to the scale map; (v) minimum polygon size fits the functions to the map scale; (vi) soil survey effort depending on the map scale; and (vii) boundary density–scale map relationships.
