Investigation of Pedodiversity Indices, Soil Differentiation and Soil-Landscape Evolution in the Semi-Arid Region of Chaharmahal-Va-Bakhtiyari Province
Landscapes are considered as a series of different land units with a size, shape and location arrangement that are permanently under the influence of natural events and human activities. Understanding the dynamics and heterogeneity of landscapes and environmental changes is of great importance. In order to quantitatively analyze and interpret the factors affecting the changes in the environment and terrain diversity, diversity indices were used to analyze the ecosystem. In this study, the relationships between soils evolution and geomorphic surfaces were investigated by applying pedodiversity indices in a part of a semi-arid region of Chaharmahal-Va-Bakhtiyari Province. In the studied area, three orders were recognized: Mollisols, Inceptisols, and Entisols. The results showed that soil evolution in the studied area was mostly influenced by topography, parent material and the underground water level; that is, in the higher lands, the lowest evolution was observed while in the plain ones, the soil of the higher evolution observed. In addition, the effect of geomorphic surfaces were obvious. Pedodiversity indices increased under the decrease of the hierarchy levels. In addition, the obtained equations revealed the nonlinear relationships in the area of geomorphic surfaces. The positive and nonlinear relationship between pedodiversity indices confirmed the nonlinear dynamic system in the studied soils.
