Welcome to the Society for Phytolith Research

The Society for Phytolith Research was founded to create a forum and a point of reference for the fast growing community of phytolith researchers around the world. Since then, the Society has been active in promoting phytolith studies through the publication of a regular journal, The Bulletin of the Society for Phytolith Research, the implementation of a series of biannual conferences, the International Meetings on Phytolith Research, and the set up of a committee for standardising phytolith nomenclature and description.
