assembly.GetTypes() vs assembly.DefinedTypes.Select(t => t.AsType());


public static IEnumerable<Type> GetAccessibleTypes(this Assembly assembly)     {         try         { #if NET40             return assembly.GetTypes(); #else             return assembly.DefinedTypes.Select(t => t.AsType()); #endif         }         catch (ReflectionTypeLoadException ex)         {             // The exception is thrown if some types cannot be loaded in partial trust.             // For our purposes we just want to get the types that are loaded, which are             // provided in the Types property of the exception.             return ex.Types.Where(t => t != null);         }     } 

What are differences between assembly.GetTypes() and assembly.DefinedTypes.Select(t => t.AsType())?
