Résumé
The primary objectives of this study is to evaluate the soil resource of the Upper Rio Puerco Watershed, and to classify these soils according to Soil Taxonomy (Soil Survey Staff, 1975). Also, the amount of soil data collected for this study is uncommon for this size of site. Taking advantage of this wealth of soil data, the secondary objectives of this study are : (1) to evaluate the adequacy of Soil Taxonomy (Soil Survey Staff, 1975) as a system for classifying soils of the semiarid regions, using Upper Rio Puerco Watershed as a case study, and (2) to compare soil classification results based solely on field estimation of soil morphological characteristics with those based also on complementary laboratory data.
