Selecting only non-native species: aliens or neophytes?

Any queries about using the BSBI database

Selecting only non-native species: aliens or neophytes?

by gsouthon » Tue Apr 26, 2022 3:01 pm

I am using the Ddb to get a list of all non-native taxa recorded during a specific timeframe, using the status selection. I'm a bit confused as to whether I should be selecting alien or neophyte status, given that they individually return different results (e.g. 622 aliens recorded during that time in contrast to 1687 neophytes). I'm wondering which status is the most reliable, or is there another way to get this info from the database?
Very grateful for any help! Thanks.
