Texture by Feel

You can analyze the texture of soil with just your hands. This helps with classifying the kind of soil you are observing. There are 3 types of soil structures: sand, silt and clay.

How to analyse soil texture by feel

gallery img01First, take a soil sample. For this, you need a hand shovel with which you can excavate the soil down to 10 cm.

gallery img02Afterwards it is necessary to prepare your sample. You should remove plants, roots and stones from the soil sample. If the soil is too dry, it must be sprayed with water. If it is too wet, dry soil must be added.

gallery img03Then, the soil must be rolled between the palms of your hands until it has a shape similar to a sausage.

gallery img04Now the soil must be examined. Is the soil...

gallery img07c.... clayey? - a heavy soil that can be formed into a long thin sausage.

Spiders are a class of the arthropods. Currently there are about 100,000 known species. The body of a spider is subdivided into two parts (front body and back body). It has 4 pairs of legs and further extremities, like poison claws, scissors, feelers or mouth parts.

Spring tails have six feet and reach a length of 0.1 mm to 17 mm. They are mainly found in humus layers, not too dry soils down to a few metres and in rotting plant material.

Earthworms live in the soil and are cylindrically structured worms. Currently 54 known species live in Austria. Their average lifetime is between three and eight years. The best known species in Austria is the common earthworm (Lumbricus terrestris). The common earthworm becomes 9 cm to 30 cm long.

Currently there are over 350,000 known species in 179 families. This makes beetles the largest species in the insect family. The body shape of them is very diverse and varies from long, slender to very short species. Furthermore, there are flat to strongly spherically shaped bodies. The body shape varies from species to species and shows the adaptation to the way of life of the individual species.

Isopods belong to the class of higher crustaceans. They can grow from 0.3 mm to almost 50 cm in size. They are flattened from the back to the belly. They have seven pairs of legs. The gills sit at the rear legs. However, different species have different levels of adaptation to life on land. Therefore, there are also species with other respiratory organs such as tracheas or lungs besides gill breathing.

Snails belong to the mollusc tribe. The body size of the snails varies from less than 0.5 mm to over 90 cm. The body of a snail consists of head and foot as well as the back lying visceral sac, which is protected by the tissue layer of the coat.
