These include nutrient-rich alluvial soils in várzea forests (seasonally inundated by white-water rivers of Andean origin), terra roxa soils (nutrient-rich, well-structured upland soils formed on base-rich rock), eutrophic Cambisols (young, relatively unweathered soils with high activity clay and high nutrient status), and Vertisols (clay soils with high activity clay minerals and high nutrient content).
