This research aims at characterising some aggregates and their intra-porosity in paired pasture/maquis plots in a Mediterranean area (Sardinia, Italy). Surface horizons were sampled for thin sections analysis. Macroaggregate shape was compared and intra-porosity was studied for representative aggregates at different depths. The interaction of root activity and grazing under pasture and maquis cover is discussed
