Abstract: Spectra obtained with the Infrared Space Observatory ISO of the dusty disks surrounding young stars display several characteristics which suggest the presence of large amounts of cometary material during these early stages. Of special interest are crystalline silicates and hydrated silicates, which surprisingly appear to be present already in cool material surrounding young objects. Another surprise is the occurrence of cometary features in the disks surrounding some binary post-AGB stars.
