Abstract/Summary

Quantative population data for shallow Antarctic soft-bottom communities in King Edward Cove, South Georgia indicate that although once grossly polluted by organic effluent and fuel oil from a whaling station, the fauna recovered within some eight years after contamination ceased. The results are discussed in relation to comparable studies in other polar and temperate areas.
