Basic contents:

Vector map. The area of species is indicated by polygons and points.

Accuracy of classifier:

Species distribution was based on site coordinates from accessions and herbarium specimens at the Vavilov Institute and on the published maps of Shelyak-Sosonko (1977), Grossgeim (1939), Malyshev & Peshkova (1990), Malyshev & Peshkova (1979) and Buhteeva et al (1990).

Method of map production:

Published literature was reviewed, including atlases, monographs and papers. Occurrence data were obtained from herbarium specimens, floras, monographs and papers. Data were then compiled through scanning and geo-referencing to develop a composite vector map. The biologist, together with the GIS specialist, drew a new plant distribution area based on compiled data.
