Summary

This is a transcript of a lecture delivered by the Austrian botanist Franz Unger in Viena in 1861, in which Unger cited many similarities between the plant structures of living plants in Australia and fossilized plant specimens from the Eocene period in Europe. These observations allowed Unger to formulate a hypothesis which proposed that all of these plants had originated in Australia, a fact which would provide proof of the connection of (now separated) landmasses during the Eocene epoch.
