Accuracy of map:

Map was created using a map of gardens of the USSR with the scale 1:20,000,000.

The projection:

"Alber's Equal Area Conic for Russia", 9, 1001, 7, 100, 0, 44, 68, 0, 0.

Basic contents:

Map is a vector file consisting of polygons and points. Points represent recorded locations of the species; polygons represent area of possible distribution of the species.

Accuracy of classifier:

Polygons are based on literature sources, political boundaries and ecological description. Point data were obtained from literature sources and herbarium specimens.

Method of map production:

Historic agricultural statistics were reviewed for each agricultural region. The Former Soviet Union had 16 regions. The boundaries from the 1:4000000 map of arable lands were used to further refine crop distribution (Koroljeva et al., 2003). The following sources were used to determine the distribution area of this species: State list (1994, 2004), Tsar'kova (1985), Kozhevnikov (2001), Kalinina (1970), Kondrashov (1984), Vstovskaja (1985), and Vitkovskij (2003). Industrial cultivation of Sea Buckthorn occurs in Altaj, Buryatia, Krasnodar, Zhitomir, Kirov, Briansk, Riazan', and Moscow regions. Species is recommended for planting as an ornamental plant in a number of towns (Vstovskaja, 1985), and these locations are marked on the map by points. Places where Sea Buchthorn was introduced into culture are marked on the map by points as well (Baltic states, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan).
