Pedology refers to the scientific study of soils, focusing on their formation, classification, and mapping. Soil is a crucial component of the Earth’s ecosystem, providing a habitat for plants and microorganisms, as well as serving as a medium for plant growth. Pedologists, scientists who specialize in pedology, examine the physical, chemical, and biological properties of soils to better understand their characteristics and how they influence various ecological processes.
