Ein Beitrag zur Deutung des „Gefleckten Horizontes"

Heinrich Rohdenburg

Abstract. The spots as described above and represented by some pictures are caused by post-sedimentary destruction of humus in the rhizosphere. They are to be found in humic material of any stratigraphical position whatever within the upper pleistocene and holocene, which is to say that they are not limited to special types of soil.
