Oceania - also known as Oceanica - is a region centred on the islands (big and small) of the tropical Pacific Ocean. Opinions of what constitutes Oceania range from its three subregions of Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia to, more broadly, the entire insular region between Asia and the Americas, including Australasia - and perhaps even (but not for us) the Malay Archipelago.
The term is often used more specifically to denote a continent comprising Australia and proximate islands - or biogeographically as a synonym for either the Australasian ecozone (Wallacea and Australasia) or the Pacific ecozone (Melanesia, Polynesia, and Micronesia apart either from New Zealand or from mainland New Guinea).
