Lecture 5a Soil Taxonomy :  Lecture 5a Soil Taxonomy Purpose of Soil Taxonomy: 1. Organize knowledge about soils 2. Understand relationships among different soils 3. Establish groups or classes for practical purposes. a. predicting behavior b. identifying best uses c. estimating productivity d. extending research results Soil Taxonomy:  Soil Taxonomy Soils are classified into into six categories based on diagnostic characteristics The last category will place the soils into one of the 12 Soil Orders. Soil Taxonomy:  Soil Taxonomy Orders (12) Suborders (54) Great Groups (211) Subgroups (1,100+) Family (7,000+) Series (a lot!) Fine-loamy mixed, superactive, mesic Aquic Argiudolls Large Category Small Category Orders:  Orders Highest and most general of the soil classification system (similar to the phylum in plant taxonomy) Based on conditions under which the soil developed Fine-loamy mixed, superactive, mesic Aquic Argiudolls Order oll = Mollisols Suborders:  Suborders Grouped by similarities in soil formation such as wetter/dryer soil, colder/warmer soil, etc. Fine-loamy mixed, superactive, mesic Aquic Argiudolls Ud = Udic Moisture Great Groups:  Great Groups Based on differences between soil horizons Fine-loamy mixed, superactive, mesic Aquic Argiudolls Great Group Sub Order Order Argi = Clay accumulation Sub Groups:  Sub Groups Describes a profile characteristic, wetness, sand, tonguing of E, etc. Great Group Fine-loamy mixed, superactive, mesic Aquic Argiudolls Sub Group Sub Order Order Aquic = wet soil Family:  Family Based on soil properties that affect management and root penetration, such as texture, temperature, and depth Great Group Fine-loamy, mixed, superactive, mesic Aquic Argiudolls Family Sub Group Sub Order Order Texture, clay minerals, CEC, temp, Series = Le Sueur :  Series = Le Sueur Named from the town or landscape feature near where the soil was first recognized (Lester = Lester Prairie, MN. Other examples = Clarion, Nashwauk, Milaca, Port Byron, Zimmerman. Le Sueur for Le Sueur County, MN.) Great Group Fine-loamy mixed, superactive, mesic Aquic Argiudolls Family Sub Group Sub Order Order Diagnostics Horizons- Used to place soils in the 6 categories:  Diagnostics Horizons- Used to place soils in the 6 categories Surface (Epipedon) Mollic Umbric Histic Ochric Subsurface Argillic Natric Spodic Oxic Cambic None Soil Taxonomy- Diagnostic Surface Epipedons:  Soil Taxonomy- Diagnostic Surface Epipedons Mollic Epipedon - thick, dark, soft, surface layer. Characteristics Thick - greater than 10 inches; High base saturation> 50%; Mineral soil Soils formed under prairie vegetation Other Epipedons:  Other Epipedons Umbric - like mollic, but low base saturation Histic - Organic Soil - saturated with water, > -% organic matter Ochric - thin, light colored - surface layers that do not fit any of the above Comparison of Epipedons:  Comparison of Epipedons Diagnostic Subsurface Horizons:  Diagnostic Subsurface Horizons Argillic - illuvial horizon of clay accumulation - Bt Natric - same as argillic but with > 15% exchangeable sodium (Na) - Btn Diagnostic Subsurface Horizons:  Diagnostic Subsurface Horizons Spodic - illuvial accumulation of oxides of Al and Fe (sesquioxides) and OM, red or dark red color - only found in acid sandy soils, with high rainfall- generally found below E horizon. Contains a Bhs or Bs horizon Oi E Bhs Bs C subsurface horizons (cont.):  subsurface horizons (cont.) Oxic - very weathered layer of only Fe and Al oxides and 1:1 clay minerals, low pH and not very fertile (found in tropical soils) Bo Cambic - slightly altered layer - not weathered enough to be argillic, Bw horizon designation or development of color and or structure NONE - no diagnostic subsurface horizon present Comparison of Subsurface Diagnostic Horizons:  Comparison of Subsurface Diagnostic Horizons Oxic very weathered Spodic Cambic Argillic Natric more Al and Fe less developed more sodium 12 Soil Orders - Each Order has a diagnostic epipedon and subsurface horizons – which could be “none”.
