THE BIOGEOGRAPHICAL REALM
Also called the Oriental realm by biogeographers, the Indomalayan realm extends through
the Indian subcontinent bioregion, the Indochina bioregion and the Malay archipelago.
Most of Indomalaya was originally covered by forest, mostly tropical and subtropical moist and dry broadleaf forests,
predominant in much of India and parts of Southeast Asia.

According to Alfred Russel Wallace,
If we can see the world through the eyes of explorers and placing life’s diversity into a geographic context, we can overcome those same barriers to the acceptance of evolution, and deepen our appreciation of biodiversity.
