Abstract

For over a century has been recognized the climate role in genesis and evolution of soil profiles and initial area classification indicated the types of soil after their climate zones.
Climate was characterized by an annual average temperature of the coldest month (January) and the most warm month (July). For expressed the moisture has been used average annual rainfall (mm).
To investigate the influence of climatic conditions on the evolution of soil profiles
were selected a group of samples belonging to agricultural, pastoral and forestry
ecosystems. For each profile was analyzed the first two horizons where the climate is more intense.
Climate data shows that they determine the intensity of decomposition processes of plants, the accumulation and mineralisation of organic matter.
