Summary

Sample were collected stratigraphically from the west wall of Backhoe Trench 7 at the Mammoth Site (41BX1239) in Bexar County, Texas. These samples were originally designated for diatom and/or phytolith analysis. Upon review of soil conditions at the site, pollen analysis was recommended as the first priority. Due to high sediment pH, diatom and phytolith dissolution was identified as a potential problem. Analysis proceeded on these sediments for the recovery and identification of pollen, phytoliths, and diatoms.
