Gondwana or Gondwanaland was the supercontinent that eventually broke apart to form the modern continents of Australian, Antarctica, Africa and South America plus Madagascar, India and New Zealand. The northern supercontinent, Laurasia, broke apart to form North America, Europe and most of Asia. Gondawanan flora were plants that evolved in Gondawana. Some of them are extinct but many have living descendents. Examples of Gondwanan Flora are Proteaceae, Nothofagus and Myrtaceae.
