Two apparently unrelated effects, viz. the behavior of transverse momentum spectra at “large” pT in p-p collisions(1) and the “enhancement” of such spectra in p-nucleus collisions(2), are shown to follow in a natural way from a hydrodynamical model in which the space-time evolution of the system is taken into account.
