Abstract


This paper deals with the physical characters of biogenous opaline partides, that have been found in superficial sediments from the santa fe province plains. Several animal and plant species were recognized, wich in turn correspond to identified silicic elements. Special emphasis is placed on Poriiera, Cyperaceae, Gramineae, Palmaceae and Podostemaceae.
