When the soil begins?

Сообщение Глея »

Where does the soil begin? This issue takes soil scientists's thoughts around the world. There are different approaches. Some scientists believe that the soil begins at the moment when the seed of the plant gets on the substrate, which sprouts and in the process of its development creates soil-specific characteristics. On the other hand it is believed that any organo-mineral substrate, or even just a mineral substrate, which was formed under the influence of soil-forming processes can be called "soil". Soil of Mars or the Moon. Soil on the roof of the house. Soils at the earliest stage of the process of soil formation. Everything is possible, but isn't it wonderful when there is still a sprout on the soil?
