    The Twelve Soil Orders Soil Taxonomy is a soil classification system developed by the United States Department of Agriculture’s soil survey staff. This system is based on measurable and observable soil properties and was designed to facilitate detailed soil survey. Soil Science Society of America. Preface. Soil Taxonomy—Achievements and Challenges is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Guy D. Smith. Just over 30 years ago, Dr. Smith distributed an “Outline of Proposed Scheme of Soil Classification” which, retrospectively, became the 1st Approximation of Soil Taxonomy. The outline contained five orders.

    The World Reference Base for Soil Resources (WRB) is an international soil classification system for naming soils and creating legends for soil maps. The currently valid version is the Update of the third edition It is edited by a working group of the International Union of Soil Sciences (IUSS). This original “national” USA soil classification system - Keys to Soil Taxonomy, Twelfth Edition () - has found widespread international acceptance particularly in countries in Latin America and principles that were developed by Soil Taxonomy were taken up by WRB and the FAO Legend to set international standards.. This system was first published in , and has .

In the symposium, micromorphological properties of major soil classification units in Soil Taxonomy were described and discussed. The objective of the symposium was to narrow the gap between the micro-morphologist and the soil classifier so that the soil classifier could use the additional knowledge about soil micromorphology for his or her.
