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 descriptions. Point data were obtained from literature sources.

Method of map production:

Historical agricultural statistics were reviewed at the regional level. The former Soviet Union has 16 regions. The boundaries from the 1:4,000,000 map of arable lands were used to further refine crop distribution (Koroljeva et al., 2003).
