I am interested to know how the Gondwanic element (eg. Myrtaceae,
Proteaceae) reaches Southeast Asia. It has been suggested that several
fragments of continents that are now embedded in S.E. Asia were initially
part of thr Gondwanaland. These continental fragments began to drift
northwards, forming island between Gondwanaland and Laurasia before they
actually collided with Laurasia. Many plants found today on S.E. Asian
mountains and in the heath forests are closely related to the Australian
flora. Anybody out there can help me?
