SOIL-PEELS AND A METHOD FOR ESTIMATING BIOPORE SIZE DISTRIBUTION IN SOILS

Soil-peels are thin blankets of soil taken in a nearly vertical position from the sides of soil pits. The soil-peels are comented on one side by cellulose acetate or vinyl plastic, and show dry colors and natural structure in three dimensions on the other more fragile side. Methods are described for taking soil-peels in the field, and for systematically studying biopores in them with the aid of a binocular microscope. /Author/
