Topic: Non-native Species Rucksack for Recorder

Has anyone produced a non-native species rucksack for Recorder they wouldn't mind sharing? Unsurprisingly, the "non-native" flag in Recorder is next to useless...

We have one that we use for Environment Agency data but it only includes species that EA want so I guess it would need expanding. The question is exactly what should be included?

I thought the clue was in the title smile

I've been working to English Natures non-native species audit - http://www.naturalengland.org.uk/ourwor … audit.aspx

I have one based on the Norfolk Non-native Species Initiative long list. The long list was worked up by experts at a workshop and is Norfolk focussed. I also have a report wizard saved report for the EA list if you want that.

That's some list - all those sycamore records and non-native conifers etc. We only have a restricted group of invasives.

Yes, it is quite impressive (also includes some virus sp.). My thinking is if we restrict a non-native list to just the ones that occur in Lincolnshire, how will we pick up the new ones that come in (I'm looking at this from a data use POV rather than an audit, I guess)?
