Holocene development of soils in response to environmental changes : the Novosvobodnaya archaeological site, North Caucasus

Recent and paleo-pedogenesis as tools for modelling past and future global change

CATT, J.A.

Description :
The A. reports a study of soil evolution based on surface and buried soils of different ages near the Novosvobodnaya settlement, south of Maykop city in the North Caucasus. The character of soils buried under the mounds and the presence of relict humus horizons in surrounding surface (background) soils indicate a sharp change in the Holocene environment : a steppe stage with Chernozems was replaced by a forest stage with Luvisols.
