Edaphic and genetic / genetic and edaphic

Hi Anna!

I really don't know if pedogenetic is the same.

In Spanish however we tend to form this kind of words whereas in English they are often left separate. If you check the web you'll see that most cases of edaphogenetic and edaphogenetical come from Spain and other non-English speaking countries.

I know the best example isn't social and economic for socioeconomic, but it's an example at any rate!

Check the web and you'll find a number of cases where these terms are left separately in combination with "ecological" and other such terms.


Sonrisas siempre,

Alfie :O) :O)
