The basic contents:

Vector map. Species distribution indicated by polygons.

Accuracy of classifier:

Species distribution is based on location coordinates of germplasm accessions and herbarium specimens of the Vavilov Institute and published maps from Grossgheim (1939), Shelyak-Sosonko (1977), Malyshev & Peshkova (1990), Busik (1979), Buhteeva et al (1990) and Ivanov & Buhteeva (1975).

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.
