Fwd: Establishing taxa as "present"

	Another problem with 'Present' is that by this logic, all the 
others are 'Absent' and you effectively have a white list (GOOD) and 
a black list (EVIL). Try taking any plant from the 'dark side' into 
the light.
	I think the Australia example is a good example of a bad system.

	And it also suggest that every species and subspecies will be 
designated good or bad regardless of genetic affinity or the rest of 
the genus/family.

	Oh dear.		Jim W.
