A STUDY OF THE PHAEOSIOMS IN THE WESTERN SIDE OF THE TIMIS AND BARZAVA PLAINS PUBLISHEDViorel Ştefan, Anişoara Duma-Copcea, Casiana Mihuţ
Phaeosioms are soils typical for the more moist and warm steppe (prairie) areas. As a consequence, accumulation of organic matter is high, but alteration and levigation are also more intense. They develop on basic materials, unconsolidated, such as loess, loessoid deposits, and glacial deposits.In the temperate area, phaeosioms border chernozems, in the sub-tropical phaeosioms border kastanozems, and in the northern hemisphere they can neighbour albeluvisoils and can have grains spoilt from loam films.
