Abstract: Soils within the southwestern mountainous region in Saudi Arabia display different features and properties as a function of elevation. The latter varies widely and associated with marked simultaneous changes in precipitation, temperature and nature of the flora cover. The interrelation between Taxonomic soil groups, soil moisture and temperature regimes could be broadly tabulated as follows: Soil great group Moisture Temperature regimes Argiustolls Ustic Mesic to thermic Haplustolls Ustic Thermic Camborthids Xeric Thermic Calciorthids- Xeric Therrnic ________________________________________________________ The systematic classification of these soils from higher to lower categories is given, features and properties of recognized taxonomic units are also discussed.
