Plants in the Arctic tundra are generally low to the ground and include low shrubs, grasses, lichens, and small flowering plants (Figure 11 below). There is little species diversity, low net primary productivity, and low above-ground biomass.

Don’t use soil dug from the garden because its heavy structure inhibits good drainage, which is essential for containers of any kind.

This definition focuses more on the general function of the soil rather then one specific use (i.e. agriculture). Soil quality has also been described as the balance between soil degradation and soil resilience (Kennedy & Papendick, ; Lal, ). Ferrosols are well-drained soils with red or yellow-brown colour and have clay-loam to clay textures.

This soil type is usually associated with previous volcanic activity and is mainly located along the Great Dividing Range. Large areas of these soils occur around Kingaroy and Atherton where they are used for intensive crop production. Which of course makes proper identification absolutely critical.
