About this book

Opal phytoliths are particles of opal (amorphous hydrated silica) that develop in the tissues of plants. When plants decay, they accumulate in the soil, and provide a record of the plants that once grew there. This is the first work to treat these important paleobotanical indicators in New Zealand.
