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.

Accuracy of qualifier:

Maps were created using generalized regional information about species distribution from published sources.

Mapping procedure:

The distribution area map was created using published data (Tulupnikov, 1960; State, 1994, 2004). The distribution area within the former USSR covers the Lower Volga regions, Krasnodar and Stavropol. krais, Transcaucasia (Azerbaijan), regions of the Ukraine, and Kirgizia (Samsonov, 1967; Prutskov, 1970; Bujukli, 1983).
