Work on the soil chemistry of amino acids is discussed. Attention is drawn to the possibility that subtle differences in amino acid composition may reflect soil type and management history. Extraction of amino acids from several horizons in palaeosols, and cultivated and uncultivated present day soils from Holne Moor, Dartmoor is discussed. Cluster analysis is used to demonstrate the existence of two groups of horizons differing in their amino acid compositions, one containing surface horizons of the present day soils, the other subsoil horizons. -from Author
