Palaearctic faunal realm Region coincident with Europe, Asia north of the Himalayan-Tibetan physical barrier, N. Africa, and much of Arabia. The region is similar at the family level, and rather less so at the generic level, to the Nearctic faunal realm: the Bering land bridge connected the two for much of the Cenozoic Era.
