Abstract:The two important regional genetic factors
governing the formation of the soils of the volcanic
high islands of the Pacific are the age of
the parent rock and the amount and distribution
of rainfall. The islands of Upolu and
Savai'i in Western Samoa offer an excellent
opportunity to study the effects of these two
factors upon soil development. The islands experience
wide ranges of orographic rainfall and
have parent rocks of different ages.
