Abstract

Whittaker et al. (Reports, 5 October 2007, p. 83) presented reconstructions for Australia and
Antarctica showing a change in relative plate motion ~53 million years ago, coincident with an
inferred major global plate reorganization. This comment addresses problematic areas in their
assumptions and the geological consequences of their reconstructions.
