The origins of the present-day faunas and floras of Africa and South America have been a fascinating puzzle for hundreds of years, and have provided a remarkable example of the catalytic effect of one scientific discipline upon another. It is now the turn of the biologists to explain how the present faunas and floras have arisen, and this volume brings together the latest information and theories about the interrelations between plate tectonics, palaeontology, and the present distribution of plants and animals.
