:) OK don't worry about this one.
Old World is the world before Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas and New world is after!

I wish scientific papers would use language that you didn't need knowledge of history to decipher

Old World tropics, including Africa, southeast Asia and Polynesian islands of the South Pacific.

Austrlia is known for wet tropics.
