A soil of an order comprising mineral soils that have not yet differentiated into distinct horizons.
- These palaeosols would be classified as entisols and inceptisols using modern soil taxonomy nomenclature, soils typical of very immature fluvial exposure surfaces.
- In this paper, nearly 700 in situ fossil trees are described from 13 entisol or inceptisol horizons.
- Significantly, palaeosols that bear the larger more widely spaced trees are generally slightly more mature than those that bear smaller and more densely distributed trees (entisols).
