palaeobiogeography, those organisms additionally supply attention-grabbing perception into specific biogeographical questions, reminiscent of bipolarity and its starting place. The evolution in time of the
recognized biochoremas could be mentioned when it comes to palaeoclimas and extinction occasions. ultimately, a number of the effects got from the research of the distribution of earlier
