|Abstract||Southeast Asia, and especially the Philippines-Indonesia-Papua New Guinea Archipelago, harbours the world’s highest marine diversity. This region also had a complex geological history. This raises the question whether these two attributes are related and, if so, how. To locally build high species richness in a region, the balance between speciation/immigration and extinction/exturpation should be positive over at least part of its geologic history.|
