The evolution of soils of the taiga forest-steppe ecotone
of the Baikal region during the Holocene

L.V. Danko

The territorial specific character of the main stages of Holocene pedogenesis is demonstrated. The study uncovers the characteristic features of bioclimatic evolution of chernozemic and texture-differentiated soils of the Mid-Holocene into organo-accumulative (soddy) soils typical of contemporary landscapes. For the Mid-Late Holocene five stages of soil formation have been identified, which are interrupted by an intensification of denudation0-accumulative processes as a consequence of global coolings.
