We hope so. The different sized meshes are designed to help separate the different sized botanical materials. For example, corn cobs and kernels would most likely be in the 4 millimeter fraction because they are large whereas something like tobacco seeds (which they may have had), would be caught in the 0.425 because their seeds are only 0.5 millimeters. This will help us speed along the sorting and identification of materials from each flotation/dry sieve sample.
