Luvisols


luvisolnazkoSoils of the Luvisolic order are well to imperfectly drained mineral soils that have developed under deciduous, mixed deciduous-coniferous boreal forests, or under mixed forest in the forest-grassland transition zone in mild to cold climates. The dominant soil-forming process in Luvisolic soils is the translocation of clay-sized mineral particles from the A to the Bt horizon.
