Distribution of plant species in the Sundalan

The distribution of plant species in the Sundalan shows marked differences between the western (Malay Peninsula and Sumatra) and eastern (Borneo) areas. Cam Webb and associates analyzed 111 tree inventories and found evidence that exposed sea-beds formed a barrier to species dispersal between the two regions. The work is published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. abstract »
