Research in this area has additionally provided a remarkable example of the catalytic effect of interdisciplinary cooperation. This volume brings together biological perspectives on the latest information and theories about the interrelation between plate tectonics, paleontology, and the present distribution of plants and animals. Chapters on the history of the problem and the paleogeography and paleoclimatic history of the area are followed by in-depth accounts of groups of plants and animals of particular interest, including aroids, acricians, rodents, and monkeys.
