Definition of some Microbiological terms

    How is autochthonous flora different from resident flora and allochthonous flora from transient flora?

    They appear to be the same to me.
    Autochthonous flora is the indigenous flora of a microenviornment able to utilise the enviornment and colonise .i.e resident of the microbiota.
    Allochthonous flora is the non-indegenous flora that inhabits a microenviornment but unable to adapt or compete is removed after sometime .i.e transient.

    I would really appreciate answers with reference to authentic sources.
