The projection:

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

Basic contents:

Vector maps: Areas of possible cultivation are represented by polygons. Places located 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 (accuracy till regions).

The technique of drawing up of a map:

Area map was made on the base of literature data (State., 1994, 2006). On the territory of the former USSR area covers territories of Nechernozem'e, Central-Chernozem region, Siberia, Ukraine, Belarus', Moldova, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Ural, Georgia, and Altai (Bahteev, 1970; Yaroslavtsev, 1987; Kazakov, 1994).
