Accuracy of a map:

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

The projection:

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

Basic contents:

Vector maps: Areas of continuous cultivation are represented by polygons. Areas of cultivation situated far from the general cultivation area are represented by points.

Accuracy of the qualifier:

Map was created on the Oblast level. Map was created using generalized information about species distribution from published sources.

Mapping procedure:

The distribution area was created using literature data (Atlas, 1960; State, 1994, 2004). Distribution area within the former USSR covers Belorussia, marshy woodlands of Ukraine, the Baltic States, and Northwestern and Central regions of Russia (Majsurian, Atabekova, 1974; Vehov, 1978; Yellow lupine, 1988; Korenev, Podgornyi, Shcherbak, 1990; Lupins, 2002). Places situated far from the base distribution area are marked by points.
