Accuracy of map:

Map is on the Oblast level. Map was created using the arable land map, which was generalized to 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 cultivation are represented by polygons. Species locations situated far from the general distribution area are represented by points.

Accuracy of qualifier:

Maps were created by generalizing information about regional species distribution from published sources.

Mapping procedure:

Distribution area map was created using published data (Chikov, 1983; State, 1994, 2004). Within the former USSR, the distribution area covers the European region to the Caspian Sea, including Crimea, the Caucasus, and the Urals (Kolesnikov, 1960; Borodina et al., 1966; Konovalov & Luganskii, 1967; Bahteev, 1970; Grozdova et al., 1986; Vitkovskii, 2003). The species is also cultivated as an ornamental plant in Siberia (Luchnik, 1981; Vstovskaya, 1986; Bakulin, 1990), Central Asia (Ahmatov, 1976; Maksimova, 1980), in the Far East ( & Tarankova, 1970), and on Sakhalin (Kolesnikov, 1960). There areas are marked on the map with points.
