Digital soil mapping better captures observed spatial variability and reduces the need to aggregate soil types based on a set mapping scale (Zhu et al., ). An important component of digital soil mapping is the method of analysis used to define the relationship between soil.

The climate, like geography, deals chiefly with present conditions; but the records of geology sometimes give us glimpses of climates which prevailed ages ago. The soil of a state, if properly studied, is found to depend upon geography, geology and climatology.

The global surface temperature has increased at a rate of °C per decade over the past 30 years as a result of rising greenhouse gas emissions [], and global warming is expected to increase continuously for the next years [], which will severely affect terrestrial ecosystems.A number of studies have reported that one of the consequences of global warming on terrestrial Cited by: in soils with higher or lower pH.

Soil pH is determined partly by the soil’s parent rock. Soil pH is also affected by the acidity of rainwater, the use of fertilizers, and the amount of chemical weathering.

Experimental studies established the major community-physiological processes that determine the structure, growth and biodiversity of overstorey and understorey plants and resident vertebrates in an ecosystem.

A review of the literature on forest soil change in North America, Central Europe. Sweden, U.K., and Australia reveals that changes are occurring in both polluted and unpolluted sites at a greater rate than previously by: Bromus-dominated soil had greater % N in the top 10 cm than Artemisia or Elymus-dominated soils.

As determined by spring isotope-dilution assays, gross mineralization and nitrification rates were higher in Bromus-dominated than Artemisia-dominated soils, but gross rates of NH4+ and NO3- .Relatively deep and fine-grained soils generally hold more water, and support relatively high plant growth rates.

For example, the Luvisol soils of Wolfe and Howe Islands are the most agriculturally productive in Frontenac county and are used primarily to grow hay, oats, and to a lesser extent corn to support the livestock industry (Gillespie.
