Genesis and Classification of Nitisols from Volcano-Sedimentary Lithology in Northeastern Brazil

Edivan Uchôa Cavalcanti da Costa, Jane Kelly Silva Araujo, Laércio Vieira de Melo Wanderley Neves, José Coelho de Araújo Filho, Juliet Emília Santos de Sousa, Marcelo Metri Corrêa, [...]


ABSTRACT On the southern coast of Pernambuco State (PE), Brazil, lithotypes of the Cabo Basin (volcanic and sedimentary rocks), in association with the relief, allow the determination of the dynamics of the formation of Nitossolos Háplicos (Nitisols), including those with high levels of exchangeable aluminum. The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of lithological diversity (basalt and sedimentary siliciclastic rocks) on the morphological, physical, chemical, and mineralogical properties of Nitossolos Háplicos along a slope (P1-summit, P2-backslope, P3-footslope) […]

Ethnopedological studies have mainly focused on agricultural land uses and associated practices. Nevertheless, peasant and indigenous populations use soil and land resources for a number of additional purposes, including pottery. In the present study, we describe and analyze folk knowledge related to the use of soils in non-industrial pottery making by peasant potters, in the municipality of Altinho, Pernambuco State, semiarid region at Brazil. Ethnoscientific techniques were used to record local knowledge, with an emphasis on describing the soil materials […]

Physical quality of Oxisols under no-tillage in the Savanna region of Piaui

Rossanna Barbosa Pragana, Mateus Rosas Ribeiro, Júlio César Azevedo Nóbrega, Mateus Rosas Ribeiro Filho, Juliana Alves da Costa


The Cerrado is being increasingly exploited in production systems characterized by intensive land use, without due concern for the preservation of natural resources. The objective of this research was to evaluate the effect of no-tillage soybean on the physical properties of Oxisols. The study was carried out in the region of “Serra do Quilombo”, located in the Cerrado region of the State of Piauí.  To assess changes in soil properties caused by agricultural use, soil samples were collected from conventional […]

Relations of the soil with the geomorphic surface in a “várzea-terra firme” topossequence in the Humaitá region, Amazonia

Milton César Costa Campos, Mateus Rosas Ribeiro, Valdomiro Severino de Souza Júnior, Mateus Rosas Ribeiro Filho, Maria da Conceição de Almeida


The geomorphic surface concept allows interrelationship among various branches of soil sciences, such as geology, geomorphology and pedology. The purpose of this study was to investigate soil-geomorphic surface relations along an upland-downland toposequence in the region of Humaitá, Amazonas State, Brazil. A transect of 4,500 m was studied from the water divide downstream to the flood plain of the Madeira river. The geomorphic surfaces were identified based on the slope rupture, stratigraphic criteria and on other field observations. Trenches were […]

Soil-landscape relationships on a granite substrate toposequence in Santo Antônio do Matupi, Manicoré, Amazonas

Milton César Costa Campos, Mateus Rosas Ribeiro, Valdomiro Severino de Souza Júnior, Mateus Rosas Ribeiro Filho, Rômulo Vinícius Cordeiro Conceição de Souza


In view of the size of the Amazon region and the need to establish connections between landscape and soil characteristics, the aim of this study was to investigate soil-landscape relationships in a toposequence on granite substrate in Santo. Antônio Matupi, Manicoré, AM. The study was carried out along a transect of 3,000 m from the top downwards, where different slope segments were identified. Profile pits were opened in each slope segment, the soils were morphologically characterized and samples collected from […]

Soil characterization along a climatic gradient in the triunfo mountain range, semi-arid region of pernambuco state, Brazil

Rômulo Vinícius Cordeiro Conceição de Souza, Mateus Rosas Ribeiro, Valdomiro Severino de Souza Junior, Marcelo Metri Corrêa, Maria da Conceição de Almeida, Milton César C. Campos, [...]


Highland forests in mountains of Northeast Brazil are islands of humid Atlantic forest in the midst of the semi-arid region. The climatic conditions are rather atypical, improved by the occurrence of orographic rainfall, which can reach 1,200 mm per year. In the state of Pernambuco, most of the scientific studies in these humid highland forests are focused on botanical and zoological aspects only, with very little information about soils. Aiming to study the soils of the humid mountains in the semi-arid […]
