Abstract

THERE are probably few lowland areas in Great Britain where the development and characteristics of soils have not been materially altered by the impact of human activities ; it is, nevertheless, often assumed that portions of the New Forest have been little influenced by man's interference. Investigation would suggest, however, that such is far from being the case, and that comparatively unobtrusive factors have exerted effects which often obscure and complicate the fundamental soil-forming processes.
