Accuracy of a map:

Map was created using 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:

The vector map of area consists of 2 layers: polygons show territories of continuous distribution of species; territories, which situated far from general area, are represented by points.

Accuracy of the qualifier:

Maps were created on the base of generalized information about species distribution from published sourses, taking into account arable territory for USSR.

The technique of drawing up of a map:

The area map was created on the base of garden map for USSR (Atlas, 1960) and literature data (State, 1994, 2004). Polygon area covers significant part of the former USSR, because territory with suitable conditions is enclosed between 45° and 60° northern latitude (Bahteev, 1970; Semenova, 2003). Species is the most distributed in central regions of European Russia, in Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus, Baltic States, Volga region (Trees ., 1954; Vehov, 1978; Vitkovskij, 2003). It is cultivated also in Republic Komi (Moiseev, 1957), Siberia (Severin, 1988), Yakutia (Gaidukova, 1979), Kazahstan (Goloskokov, 1961), Tadzhikistan (Ivanov, 1990), on the sizeable areas in Kirgizia and Uzbekistan (Trees ., 1954; Flora, 1965), that is marked by points.
