ITF Soil Survey - Merged with NRCS Soils for Northestern PR- 2012 This survey was made to provide information about the soils within El Yunque National Forest. The information includes descriptions of the soils and their location and a discussion of the suitability, limitations, and management of the soils for specified uses. Observations were made concerning the steepness, length, and shape of slopes; the general pattern of drainage; the kinds of native plants; and the kinds of bedrock. Many holes or pits were sampled to study the soil profile, which is the sequence of natural layers, or horizons, in a soil. The profile extends from the surface down into the unconsolidated material in which the soil formed. The unconsolidated material is devoid of roots and other living organisms and has not been changed by other biologic activity.
