Ants are particularly good soil mixers in temperate and tropical climates, whereas large animals are relatively unimportant to soil formation. Whatever the source of sediment, soil is a product of sediment and organic matter, climate, topography, and time. Climate affects weathering rates and the biota, both flora and fauna.
The principle of stratigraphical succession: A unit of stratification takes its place in the stratigraphic sequence of a site from its position being older than the units that lie above it and younger than the units that lie below it and with which the unit has physical contacts. Stratigraphic units can be defined in a variety of ways. The most familiar, from a geological standpoint, is the rock stratigraphic unit. This concept is independent of time and is a boundary of lithological change. Its basic unit is the formation, and parts of it are termed members.
Once airborne, silt and clay will be transported by the wind in suspension for very great distances before finally settling out. Wind-transported sediments form a variety of deposits, depending on their grain size. Finer-grained silt and clay produce loess deposits that cover the preexisting land surface. Under ideal conditions, which were commonly met in Peri- and Postglacial times, these sediments formed extensive deposits covering vast areas. Sand-sized grains can be concentrated as dune fields.
