Since 1950, the Institute of Soil Science, Academia Sinica, with the cooperation of the local soil research organizations, has carried out a series of field and laboratory investigations on the tropical and subtropical soils in China. The materials and data accumulated in the past 33 years give a view of broad outline on the genesis, distribution, properties and management of the soils, particularly the red soils in South China.

Based on the above mentioned work, we invited some foreign prominent soil scientists to attend the Symposium on Red Soils held in Nanjing on November 15-19, 1983. It is our great pleasure and honor that about 20 scholars from eleven countries participated in the Symposium. They gave valuable reports dealing with the red soils of Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Oceania. The Proceedings cover 33 papers. In addition, many of the participants joined the post-symposium excursion in South China. Some illustrations of Soil profiles in the red soil region observed during the excursion are given in the appendix.
