An analysis of the Rendzina issue in the valid Czech soil classification system
J. Sládkováhttps://doi.org/10.17221/41/2008-SWRCitation:Sládková J. (2009): An analysis of the Rendzina issue in the valid Czech soil classification system. Soil & Water Res., 4: 66-83.
The article deals with the soil classification system valid in the Czech Republic. Using the soil type Rendzina from the former genetic-agronomic soil classification as an example, it analyses and revises the class definitions (soil types and subtypes), particularly their clarity, solidity, and mutual exclusivity based on the real state of diagnostic characteristics. The article advocates that the valid national soil classification system should be adequately detailed to satisfy practical needs and to preserve its convertibility into the international classification WRB system. At the same time, it should not be inconsistent with the methodology of the international project SOTER.Keywords:
