Denudation and lithogenesis in forest soil formation

Yu.I. Ershov

solum@ksc.krasn.ru

This paper is concerned with some theoretical issues related to the influence of denudation and contemporary continental lithogenesis on soil formation in forest biogeocenoses and pedogenic substrates in Russia’s nontropical belts. An assessment is made of the directedness of these processes and of the contribution they make to the genesis and spatiotemporal organization of soils and soil cover. A framework is provided for the understanding of the most general regularities of forest soil formation under the influence of exogenous processes.

Keywords: soil formation, exogenous processes, denudation, pedogenesis trends, soil deformation, soil evolution.
