Abstract

This note queries the discussion of the origins of " desert varnishes " (Smith and Whalley, 1988), with particular reference to manganese - rich conditions. The case for a biotic model of varnish development is proposed and illustrated as opposed to the abiotic model put forward by Smith and Whalley
