    It is a huge question, but in general you would want to check paleoclimatology (for example, glaciation of Antarctica after opening of Drake and Tasmania passages), paleontology/biogeography (distribution of fossils and ancient migration of various animal groups).

    There is a page with lecture notes which is very shorthand but touches on most things you may want to check:
