Abstract: The theory is proposed that the fern floras of the South Pacific,
while being predominantly recently Malaysian in origin, consist also of two older
elements, one being relics only of an ancient world-wide flora, the other an earlier
Malaysian invasion confined now to the older and larger islands only. A fourth
minor element is a recently evolved southern or subantarctic group.
