Abstract
An outsider notes an air of frustration and futility amongst certain pedologists, when the classification of tropical soils is mentioned. There seems to be a feeling, that a soil survey is so laborious as to be impracticable in backward countries, and further, there is a doubt whether the data collected by survey can lead to a rational classification. Some even wonder Whether a classification would really mean anything or have any value. If pedologists cannot yet give a decision from the maternal evidence their science a stranger to the subject maybe forgiven for bringing some external evidence to bear. the last difficulty will be dealt with first.
