Abstract
    Oiled birds appear to be a commoner aspect of oil pollution where it occurs with cold water-temperatures, whereas the formation of tar-balls becomes more prominent with warm ones, possibly because liquid oil becomes reduced to inert solid residues comparatively harmless to birds more rapidly at higher temperatures.
