We give two proofs that the h-vector of any paving matroid is a pure O-sequence, thus answering in the affirmative a conjecture made by Stanley, for this particular class of matroids. We also investigate the problem of obtaining good lower bounds for the number of bases of a paving matroid given its rank and number of elements. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
