Abstract

Abstract By comparing the hydrocarbons of benthic invertebrates from two Antarctic sites, Clarke & Law (1981) concluded that for one of their locations the source was local. In doing so, they questioned our suggestion that a world-wide dissemination of pyrolysis products was partly responsible (Platt & Mackie, 1979). However, we argue here that in fact their results confirm our contention. We also present some new data on the aromatic hydrocarbons of a South Georgia starfish.
