Geological History of India Re-examined

20 Jan 17

According to the scientists, India harbours many unique species of flora and fauna that only occur in this form on the subcontinent. Additionally, India slowly drifted away from Africa and Madagascar towards the north and collided with the Eurasian plate. The scientists believe that before it collided with the Eurasian plate, India was largely isolated for at least 30 million years during its migration.

However, the recent findings have shown opposite results. According to the current findings, the Indian subcontinent may not have been as isolated on its journey as we have thought. The research has done by palaeontologists at the University of Bonn. The scientists have claimed that the recent findings indicate an exchange that occurred between the apparently isolated India, Europe and Asia.

Before the study, many scientists were under the impression that India was isolated in this way due to continental drift. The supercontinent Gondwana, which included South America, Africa, Antarctica, Australia, Madagascar and India, broke up over the course of geological history.
