Soil Groups of New Zealand

The New Zealand Society of Soil Science published the 8-part Soil Groups of New Zealand, between 1974 and 1985.


This series describes the soils in terms of the New Zealand Genetic Classification, which grew out of the need for reconnaissance mapping of the nation’s soil resources. It was successful as a unifying factor in New Zealand Soil Science, but has subsequently been superseded by the New Zealand Soil Classification.
