A floristic analysis is given of the flora of the Lesser Sunda Islands. It is concluded that their flora must formerly have been richer, especially in rain‐forest plants Irom both east and west Malesia. Impoverishment of the flora started at the onset of the Glacial Age, when these islands acted as an important bridge from continental south east Asia through the Philippines, Celebes, to north Australia, facilitating exchange of drought‐indifferent or seasonal drought‐requiring plants between Asia and Australia. Before the Pliocene the Lesser Sunda Islands contributed little to effective contact and exchange.
