Indigenous??? What is the difference?
= organisms bought to a location without the help of man
such as by the wind, wave, and or birds.
= organism that are native and can be found only in that
location. Examples of organisms that are endemic to Hawaii
are the spectacled parrotfish, fantail filefish and Hawaiian
= organisms that are native but can be found elsewhere. An
example of this is the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle.
- An alien species or
introduced species = organisms
that were not bought to that location naturally but by man
such as the polynesian.
