      “The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.” According to the Sarawak Soil Classification, the morphological properties in the studied sites resemble of Bako soil series as a dominant unit in association with Saratok series in which

      An area of ha at UiTM Sarawak, Samarahan Campus farm was surveyed at a detailed level. There are three soil major groups, three soil families and six soil series identified in UiTM Sarawak, Samarahan campus. The three soil major groups are Red Yellow Podzolic (RYP), Gley and Organic. The three soil families are BEKENU and MERIT Family of RYP Group, BIJAT and TATAU Family of Gley Group and About this book. Soil Genesis and Classification, Sixth Edition, builds on the success of the previous editions to present an unparalleled resource on soil formation and ing a color plate section containing multiple soil profiles, this text also includes information on new classification systems and emerging technologies and databases with updated references ://

This Second Edition of The Australian Soil Classification includes updates from a working group of the National Committee on Soil and Terrain (NCST), especially in regards to new knowledge about acid sulfate soils (sulfidic materials).

The purpose of this study is to analyse this latest classification system presented in the Malaysian Soil Taxonomy — Revised Second Edition (Paramananthan, a) and to evaluate its applicability for classification of tropical peats in Sarawak, comparing it with the international systems of the USDA Soil Taxonomy and the WRB.
