FOR A STRUCTURED NAME (BI OR POLYNOMINAL) PUBLISHEDN. FLOREA
Abstract. In the paper a structured name for soil is proposed, namely at general level by a binominal name that shows the soil genetic (first name) acquired by soil forming process, and inherited soil side from the parent rock (second name). To this binominal name other two terms can be added, in case of detailed soil characterization, namely for soil geographic peculiarities by a term for soil facies (geozonal and geolocal), and for anthropogenic soil side by a term of soil ˮtransfigurationˮ (modification) by human activity. This soil denomination is congruent with the soil classification system. The different taxa can be included in a hierarchy of World Reference Base of Soil Resources, like in the Soil Taxonomy.
Key words: soil name, genetic side, inherited side, geographic peculiarity, anthropgenic ˮtransfiguration
