Summary

A total of 283 botanic samples were submitted for analysis from 21 sites located in Yellowhouse Draw and Yellowhouse Canyon, Lubbock, Texas. The area is geologically stratified with five primary strata, four buried substrata, and one surface soil. Samples were recovered from stratigraphic sediments, although the sampling method is not known. It is generally accepted that for plant remains from prehistoric archaeological sites or stratigraphic deposits to be preserved, they must be carbonized. Samples submitted for analysis were retrieved from trenches, features, or areas. Only seeds and/or charcoal were received for botanical analysis, rather than entire samples. Charred and uncharred seeds and charcoal were identified.
