Basic contents:

The map is a vector file consisting of 1 basic and 3 subject layers. The species range is represented by a polygon and dots.

Accuracy of the qualifier:

The dots represent information on the species localities according to herbarium materials of LE (1) and published sources (2), the polygon - generalized information on the species distribution.

Method of the map contruction:

The range map is based on coordinates according to herbarium materials of V.L.Komarov Botanical Institute (LE), the database of the species localities coordinates included in the Information Retrieval System "Crop Wild Relatives in Russia" (STC Informregistr 0229905883, 1999), and published maps (Shelyag-Sosonko, 1977). The species is distributed in the European part of the former USSR from its western border to the Urals in the zones of broad-leaved forests, coniferous-broad-leaved forests and southern taiga. In Karelia and Arkhangelsk Region it penetrates far into the northern taiga zone. The range border in the eastern Ukraine shifts to the steppe zone and covers the Donets Ridge.
