Title: Location and extent of the soils of Southern Ontario: A user's guide to series, catenae and soil legend information
Author: Jarvis, I. E.; MacDonald, K. B.; Denholm, K. A.
Abstract: This technical bulletin shows the relationship between soils of the agricultural regions of southern Ontario mapped in detail by county and the generalized provincial level characterized by the Soil Landscapes of Canada map (map scale 1:1,000,000). For general users and students of soil science, the report provides an overview of the spatial distribution of soils across southern Ontario. The soil legend provides information about the soil parent material deposits and texture as well as the general category of surface soil drainage. For expert users of soil survey information, this report is intended to provide a framework for broad level soil correlation. It replaces the 1964 publication Soil Associations of Southern Ontario; Report 30.
