Terminology differences between the questionnaire and the article

Posted by Anekeia on 03 Sep 2014 at 16:39 GMT

In this paper the authors freely use the term/concept of 'invasion' and relate findings from their questionnaire to management of 'invasive species.' However, they intentionally omitted the term/concepts 'invasion' and 'invasive species' from the questionnaire they used. This suggests the authors considered 'invasive species' to be inappropriate for purposes of information gathering, which further suggests that the idea of 'invasive species' should have been irrelevant for the purposes of reporting, analyzing and interpreting results.
