  • Abstract In their review, Song et al. (2016) overstate the validity of the atmospheric carbon sequestration potential of phytoliths as they misrepresent recent literature on the topic and omit any evidence that calls into question this concept. Here, we evaluate and present the full range of the misrepresented and omitted literature, and question the representativeness of their original assumptions. We also address Song et al.'s concerns regarding isotopic fractionation and/or the negative… CONTINUE READING
