Indonesia, is an archipelagic nation, with several of the largest islands in the world. The inter-island seas serve as barriers to migration depending on the species, so that there are many unique and separate floral and faunal elements within the nation. Indonesia is of course the site of "Wallace's line" (and other famous "lines"). So out here in the east our species are often different than those in the west closer to the Asian mainland.
