How do refugia form naturally? What are the community assembly processes of contraction?Did a large inland lake exist on Sundaland, in the position of the Bay of Thailand?; How did the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) cycle differ during the glacial period? Does general or supra-annual mast fruiting require a special hypothesis?; Was the Sunda Shelf covered by vast peat swamps?; 5.2.2 Variance in historical biogeography among forest types is predictable; Mangrove forests; Lowland forests; Upland forests; Outstanding questions about specific forest types; Do different biogeographic histories lead to predictable differences in the dominant phenotypic traits and seed dispersal characteristics.
