AbstractIn the perhumid climate belt of the Canary Islands and on plio-pleistocenic rocks, some unusual complex soils have been observed. These soils show : firstly in the depth, a very advanced weathering process, the characteristics of wich look like those of Ferrallitic Soils (Ultisols), secondly at the top, a humiferous soil, such as unsaturated Andosols (Dystrandepts). The authors deal successively with the ecological conditions, then their morphological, physico-chemical and mineralogical characteristics. Afterwards, they attempt to do an interpretation of data and to propose a classification of these soils in the french and american Systems. In cloncusion, they propose the hypthesis that the old alteration products have been probably processed in wetter and warmer climatic conditions than at the present time; however, they remark that the ferrallitization can proceed still now, bul discreetly, in the Andosols, especially by the processing of some gibbsite.
