Adman's Musings. Book Two (repost from SE forums)Welcome back to Adman's musings. In this part, we will be discussing the other effects of New Zealandia's formation on the island continent's ecosystems, including the latitudinal shift and the arrival of New Caledonian Fauna. Now, without further ado, let us begin.Adman's Musings. Book Two (repost from SE forums) by Syphonodon
In the previous part, I covered how the evolution of active ground predators affected the island of New Zealand, which resulted in a ripple effect that completely changed the ecosystems, resulting in hardier plants and more flighty and aggressive herbivores. But another change affected New Zealand, and that was the formation of New Zealandia. Around 45 myh, the Zealandian plate moved over a hotspot, which resulted in volcanic upwellings bringing much of the former Zealandian surface up to the surface once more. When the volcanic activity slowed down around 28 myh, the brought up surfaces were fertile enough to allow floral and faunal interchanges in between the two islands, as stated previously. This was however a very grad

GREAT NORTHERN SWAMP
Fed by many storms brought by the Thymomenic Ocean, the Great Northern Swamp is a gigantic, humid forest with a great variety of vegetation. It is indeed where most of the non-carnivorous plants are concentrated and were able to survive due to the richness of the soil there. The area is supported by fresh water lakes and streams, making it ideal for all kinds of life form to survive. The animals that live within are usually smaller than those in the Great Savannah as there is less space to run around but are also more flexible. However some larger herbivores patrol the outskirt of the Swamp to feed on the trees.
Although the Great Northern Swamp is often struck by lightning storms, little of it burns down due to the high humidity. Surprisingly, the highest region of the Great Northern Swamp is higher in latitude relative to Churchill (a city north of Manitoba located near the Arctic Tundra) on Earth. Yet
MAEAOkay, time to start my project after fretting minor errors in my writing.MAEA by Coloanas
So Maea, is a moon, roughly the size of Earth. It is a tropical paradise with nearly thrice the biomass of Earth. It orbits a medium sized gas giant, which orbits a K-type star (at a distance of 0.70 AU). There is a single continent straddling its prime meridian, a peninsula (Tankui’edo), and two major archipelagos (Heilo kyiti and Kawaii respectively), surrounding it is one global ocean.
First of all, life here appeared during what is called the Triassic period; rifts (it's unknown whether it's natural or artificial in origin) randomly appeared, sucking anything within a mile radius. Among the first inhabitants were microorganisms, accompanied by algae, fungi, and simple plants. These hardy pioneers were followed by vascular plants and animals.
During the remainder of the Mesozoic (after the rifts closed), the dinosaurs dominated. However, an ice age occurred during the last days of the Mesozoic, killing o
