Summary

Pollen/starch, phytolith, and macrofloral samples were removed from the fill of three fire

features at site LA138576 in southeast New Mexico, while pollen/starch and phytolith samples

were collected from sediment scrapes at the edge of two of the hearths and from the surface as

a control sample. This site is a lithic debitage and tool scatter with three fire features located

between Artesia and Loco Hills, New Mexico, and is situated within the Chihuahuan desert scrub

plant community. Pollen/starch, phytolith, and macrofloral remains were examined in an effort to

define plants that were processed at this site.
