Huang sequently, the weathering of AI-bearing minerals, which can be enhanced by leaching, natural vegetation, farming, and other anthropogenic activities, would lead to acidification of soils and the associated environments. The hydroxy Al polymers adsorbed on the surfaces of soil minerals are important sources of soil acidity and are termed "third buffer range" acidity (Schwertmann and Jackson, 1963), pH-dependent, or titratable acidity (Clark, 1964; Cole men and Thomas, 1964; De Villiers and Jackson, 1967b).
