Distribution is shown only for a search using the Species tab, with results of less than 5000. The full distributions of all taxa from the results of a species search are shown. To filter by non-native status (adventive, cultivated, naturalized, other, uncertain), use the search box in the table. If a search within the table fails because of a slow network connection, you may need to export the data to search within the rows.
