Physical arrangement of sediment into peds (a natural soil aggregate) as the result of pedogenesis (reproduction by young or larval animals). Soil has a structure on which its porosity-permeability depends. Soil structure is built up by alternate moistening and drying and plant roots contribute greatly by opening pores between soil aggregates. The stability of aggregates increases with humus content especially humus that originates from grass vegetation.
