Of, produced by, or influenced by the soil.
- Some plant species are tolerant of edaphic factors in serpentine soils.
- Consequently, we would expect that the observed distributions of species reflect both the distributions of key environmental and edaphic influences as well as historic and current disturbance events.
- Such environmental and edaphic changes may greatly influence plant growth and survivorship, shaping species composition in the post-harvest community.
Late 19th century: coined in German from Greek edaphos 'floor' + -ic.
