Abstract

The aim of the present study was to characterize soils and soil cover of urban and suburban parks of Saint Petersburg. Soils were classified according to the Russian soil classification system and WRB 2014. The studied urban soils are characterized by alkaline pH, high concentrations of organic carbon and available phosphorous. The thickness of anthropogenic layers and soil pH were significantly different in urban and suburban parks, while soil organic carbon, available phosphorous and available potassium varied greatly even in the same profile.
