The study of soils of different ages in different physiographic regions of the Crimean Peninsula made it possible to reveal the main regularities of pedogenesis in the Late Holocene (in the past 2800 years). With respect to the average rate of the development of soil humus horizons, the main types of soils in the studied region were arranged into the following sequence: southern chernozems and dark chestnut soils > mountainous forest brown soils > gravelly cinnamonic soils. In the newly formed… 

The development of chernozems on the Dniester-Prut interfluve in the Holocene

The development of forest-steppe and steppe chernozems on the Dniester-Prut interfluve in the Holocene was studied on the basis of data on the paleosols buried under archaeological monuments of

Late-Holocene palaeoenvironments of Southern Crimea: Soils, soil-climate relationship and human impact

Occupying 4% of Crimea’s territory, the sub-Mediterranean landscapes of Southern Crimea stand out for their distinct soil-climatic conditions and record of human activity. This paper presents the

Post-agrogenic evolution of soils in ancient Greek land use areas in the Herakleian Peninsula, southwestern Crimea

The paper examines the regularities of the post-agrogenic evolution of soils of differing age in the Herakleian Peninsula (southwestern Crimea, Ukraine), which developed under conditions of the

Maximum Humus Horizon Thickness as a Criterion for Identifying Standard Soils in the Crimean Plain

Abstract—The identification of the main soil categories in the structure of the regional Red Book should focus on typical soils that were formed taking into account the zonal soil-ecological

Transformation of dry-steppe soils under long-term agrogenic impacts in the area of ancient Olbia

The results of the study of dark chestnut soils (Kastanozems) differing in the time and intensity of their agricultural use and in the duration of the fallow stage are analyzed. Soil sequences

In regions with complex geological history, diversity of climate, soils and parent rocks, it is possible to predict a large number of paths for soils recovery in the areas that have been disturbed by

Archaeological ash deposits and soils formed on ash in the south of the East European Plain

Soil reproduction in steppe ecosystems of different ages

A regional model of the humus horizon steppe soil over time allowed us to estimate the time interval at which the processes of humus accumulation and morphological maturity of the soil profile are relatively at equilibrium, viz., 1700–1900 years.

Soil-Chronological Studies and GIS-Modeling of Formation and Evolution of Soils on the Crimean Peninsula

The methodological basis for the research of soils of various ages, which are formed on dated archaeological objects of the Crimean Peninsula, is considered. The application of soil-chronological



Holocene environmental change in southwestern Crimea (Ukraine) in pollen and soil records

Pollen records and soil development sequences from the Heraklean Peninsula and the Chyornaya Valley provide information on climatic change and fluctuation of ecological boundaries (mesic forests,

A Quantitative Comparison of Soil Development in Four Climatic Regimes

Soil development in anthropogenically disturbed forest-steppe landscapes

The results of long-term studies of chernozem development in anthropogenically disturbed landscapes of the forest-steppe zone are discussed. Parameters characterizing the formation of the humus

Biological properties of south Russian soils: Tolerance to oil pollution

Oil pollution of south Russian soils usually leads to reduction in the abundance of ammonifying bacteria, microscopic fungi, and bacteria of the genus Azotobacter, as well as in enzyme (catalase and
