To return to the northern hemisphere, it is clear that the Wealden flora, as represented by plants recorded from England, France, Belgium, Portugal, Russia, Germany and other European regions, as also from Japan and elsewhere, carries on, with minor differences, the facies of the older Jurassic floras.
Unfortunately, our knowledge of the later floras in the southern hemisphere is very incomplete, but a similar transformation appears to have characterized the vegetation south of the equator.

A few, on the other hand, have a very restricted range, the Greenland right whale (Balaena mysticetus) being, for instance, limited to the zone of the northern circumpolar ice, while no corresponding species occurs in the southern hemisphere.
In fact, the only known exception is the case of a colony of elephant-seals (Macrorhinus leoninus), whose general range is in the southern hemisphere, inhabiting the coast of California.
In the western hemisphere wheat was not known till the 16th century.
As we conceive of the sky, it does not consist of an entire sphere but only as a hemisphere bounded by the horizon.
The two parts of this sphere are the visible hemisphere, which is above the horizon, and the invisible, which is below it.
On the side of this sphere opposite to the North Celestial is the South Pole, invisible in the Northern Terrestrial Hemisphere but visible in the Southern one.
Sir John Herschel continued in the Sir John northern, and extended to the southern hemisphere, Herschel.
One is the existence of dark and bright regions, irregular in form, on its surface; the other is the complete illumination of the lunar disk when seen as a crescent, a faint light revealing the dark hemisphere.
Ricci, seeing their dissatisfaction, set about constructing a map of the hemisphere on a great scale, so adjusted that China, with its subject states, filled the central Xxiii.
In the accompanying cut we have endeavoured to portray this map. The projection adopted is a perspective of the hemisphere as viewed from a point at the distance of one diameter from the surface, and situated on the production of.
With a vertex much more distant the desired effect would be impaired, and with one nearer neither of the poles would be seen, whilst the exaggeration of China would have been too gross for a professed representation of the hemisphere.
Physical Geography The main structural lines of the continent show both the east-to-west direction characteristic, at least in the eastern hemisphere, of the more northern parts of the world, and the north-to-south direction seen in the southern peninsulas.
The months of February and March are therefore best for the evening observations in the northern hemisphere, but the light can generally be seen from January until April.
The Glossopteris flora of India and the southern hemisphere, the age of which has been disputed, but is now regarded as for the most part Permo-Carboniferous, is, however, dealt with in the succeeding section, in connexion with the Mesozoic floras.
The Permian, so far at least as its lower beds are concerned, shows little change from the Stephanian; Conifers of the Walchia type are especially characteristic. The remarkable Permo-Carboniferous flora of India and the southern hemisphere is described in the next section of this article.
The sketch given above extends, for the later periods, to the vegetation of the northern hemisphere only.
In Australia, South America and South Africa a few plants have been found which agree closely with Lower Carboniferous types of the northern hemisphere.
It is, in short, clear that the Culm flora, as we know it in the northern hemisphere, existed in the extreme south, and it is probable that during the earlier part of the Carboniferous period the vegetation of the world was uniform in character.
Jule, the regional commander for the eastern hemisphere and the oldest of the three of them by far, had come from the same world as the Watchers but refused to talk about it.
Jule, the regional commander of the eastern hemisphere, demanded with a laugh.
As the chief of the spies in this hemisphere, she'd been in a lot of really bad situations with nothing but her charm and mind control to keep her safe.
The caller was none other than Dusty, the leader of the White God's vampire killing operations for the Western Hemisphere.
With chiseled features and cold eyes, he looked every bit the man who had headed up Damian's assassination corps before the promotion to the leader of all operations in the Western Hemisphere.
The constellation itself can be seen in the warm seasons in the Northern hemisphere and in the cold seasons in the Southern hemisphere, and it's positioned between 80 and -80 degrees.
The city is loaded with history, southern charm, and dozens of popular tourist attractions, including the Citadel, Fort Sumter, and the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, the longest cable-stayed bridge in the Western Hemisphere.
For example, it was found that the shadow of an upright stick or stone varied from day to day, because, as we have already noticed, the sun rises farther north in summer in the northern hemisphere than it does in winter.
This Jaeger Lecoultre Atmos also has a new movement that displays northern hemisphere constellations through a large opening.
Some doctors believe the phenomenon occurs due to left-brain injury, a theory that is sometimes reinforced by brain scans and MRIs revealing damage to this hemisphere.
Neurologist Dr. Bruce Miller found evidence of a possible connection between savantism and left hemisphere brain damage, which resulted in the right brain hemisphere compensating for the left hemisphere impairments.
His study of CT and MRI scans of patients with dementia indicated that the right brain hemisphere is capable of producing savant abilities when compensating for left hemisphere brain damage.
Most Guardians did, including Dusty, who personally oversaw every operation in his hemisphere.
Most stations in the northern hemisphere have a conspicuous maximum at midsummer with little thunder in winter.
The monotypic Pringlea antiscorbutica, the Kerguelen Island cabbage, has no near ally in the southern hemisphere, but is closely related to the northern Cochlearia.
It has a world-wide distribution, but finds its chief development in the temperate and frigid zones, especially of the northern hemisphere, and as Alpine plants.
That these animals were widely distributed in former times is proved by their occurrence at the present day in palaeozoic fossiliferous strata both of the northern hemisphere and of Australia; and despite the fact that their remains have not been found in rocks of the Mesozoic or Kainozoic epochs, it was conceived to be possible that living specimens might be dredged from the sea-floor during the exploration of the ocean depths undertaken by the "Challenger" expedition.
In the southern hemisphere the Palaeozoic flora appears ultimately to have been profoundly modified by a lowering of temperature and the existence of glacial conditions over a wide area.
A well-marked trochosphere is formed by the development of an equatorial ciliated band; and subsequently, by the disproportionate growth of the lower hemisphere, the trochosphere becomes a veliger.
The typical genus Lilium and Fritillaria are widely distributed in the temperate regions of the northern hemisphere.
The Glossopteris flora gradually spread to the northern hemisphere and intermingled with the later Palaeozoic flora which still persisted.
