Accuracy of map:

Map is based on data from herbarium specimens and on maps having the following scale 1:15,000,000 - 1:60,000,000.


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

Basic contents:

Vector file consisting of polygons and points. Locations of species are represented by points, areas of possible distribution of species are represented by polygons.

Accuracy of classifier:

Points represent locations of the species referenced in literature sources and from herbarium specimens. Polygons are based on generalized information from literature sources and herbarium specimens.

Method of map production:

Species location data were obtained from a database of site coordinates of the species in the INFORMATION RETRIEVAL SYSTEM " Wild-growing relatives of cultural plants of Russia " (NTC "Informregistr" № 0229905883, 1999) and from maps published by M.P.Zhukovsky (1928), A.Eig (1929), M.W. van Slageren (1994).
The species has a disjunctive area. Borders of all parts of the area were drawn in accordance with points from maps published by M.W. van Slageren (1994) and were corrected using information of herbarium specimens of VIR, which is kept in database IRS. Odessa region is not included because species exceeds borders.
