variability of masses of phytoliths extracted

Dear All,

I am looking for information regarding phytolith masses extracted from soils/sediments. These masses are usually expressed in grams of phytoliths per gram of dry soil/sediment or as a percentage of total mass. Do you know of any articles in the literature that give an estimate of the errors associated with the extracted masses? Or, have you yourself extracted phytoliths from the same soil/sediment sample several times to estimate the variability of the extracted masses related to your extraction protocol?

Thank you very much
