Abstract
Abstract The study of soil quality requires the establishment of quality standards. To this end, several authors have highlighted the need to create databases of quality indicators, such as biochemical properties, for different types of undisturbed soils under various climates and to establish standardised methodologies for their development. In Spain, studies of the quality of native soils were initiated > 15 years ago by several groups of authors from differing locations, but little is known regarding the biochemical characteristics of native soils in Catalonia (NE Spain). This study examines representative, minimally disturbed soils from Catalonia with a wide...
