  1. podzol soil

    In soil science, podzols are the typical soils of coniferous or boreal forests and also the typical soils of eucalypt forests and heathlands in southern Australia. In Western Europe, podzols develop on heathland, which is often a construct of human interference through grazing and burning.

  1. podzol soil

    Podzol soil is a type of acidic soil with a bleached subsurface layer, typically found in coniferous or boreal forests, and areas with high rainfall. It is characterized by high levels of organic matter and commonly contains iron and aluminum compounds. The unique transformation and translocation process in podzol soil results in a distinctive layering effect. The name "Podzol" comes from the Russian term for ash, reflecting the often grayish or ashy appearance of this soil type.
