I’m trying to set up a taxa change that needs atlasing to deal with the geographic splits.
I’m in one of the species involved, and need to make sure the atlas for it includes Australia, but not New Zealand. There are currently lots of records for this species in New Zealand which actually need to be moved to a different species.
I want to ensure New Zealand is not in the Atlas, when I click to remove it, I get this very scary message.
‘This will destroy all the listed taxa that are of this taxon (or any descendants) for this place (or any standard descendants). This can be very destructive, are you sure?’
But I’m not actually sure what it means. ‘Destroy’ is a very evocative word…
