The Wallance line is an imaginary line spread throughout islands between mainland Asia and Australia, with species of Asian descent being on one side and species of Australian descent on the other side. It tells us of how Asia and Australia were at one point a singular landmass and that over time they eventually split apart. Continental drift supports Wallace's theory.
