Abstract

This study has compared the phytolith production and soil phytolith assemblages of 2 native grass communities typical in Argentina, namely the "pajonal" and the "flechillar". Five sites (three of which had been unmanaged while other two had been submitted to fire and fire-grazing management activities) were selected for study. The results suggest that modern phytolith assemblages are composed not only of local and present vegetation but also of extralocal/regional and probably past vegetation. Hypotheses about the probable processes involved in phytolith incorporation to soil have emerged during the investigation
