Quick Reference

Species that have disjunct distribution patterns, one part of the range being to the north of the Equator, the other to the south, the different parts being geographically quite separate. These disjunctions probably arose in the Pleistocene when the climatic belts were telescoped, and migration across the Equator would have been easier.
