In the large Djerid Basin, the central portion is covered by stands of Halocnemum strobilaceum (the most adapted phanerogam species) and then followed by vegetation belts of Salsola tetrandra, Suaeda mollis and Suaeda fruticosa.
The sequence involves a decline in phanerogam genera from c. 1,400 in Papua New Guinea to c. 260 in both Tonga and Niue.
The Solomon group contains almost 650 species of phanerogam with 162, or 25% of the total not occurring on any other island to the east.
The New Caledonia dry forests ecoregion contains 379 native plant species (phanerogam), 59 of which are found only in the dry forests.
The still wider evolution, not of solitary individuals, but of all the individuals within each province -- in the vegetal world from the unicellular cryptogam to the highest phanerogam, in the animal world from the amorphous amœba to Man -- is at least suspected, the gradual rise of types being at all events a fact.
