Data of creation:




Accuracy of map:

The map was created using maps that had a scale of 1:50,000,000, 1:30,000,000, 1:10 000,000, 1:5,000,000.

Basic contents:

Vector map. Points represent locations of species; area of possible distribution of species is represented by polygon.

Accuracy of classifier:

Light-colored points are locations of species obtained from the literature (Malyshev & Peshkova, 1990); (Malyshev & Peshkova, 1979); (Harkevich, 1982); (Hulten & Fries, 1986). Dark-colored points are locations of species obtained from herbarium specimens and germplasm accessions from the N.I.Vavilov All-Russian Research Institute of Plant Industry. Polygons were created using data about the distribution of species in floristic regions according to the following sources: (Author, 1974); (Ramenskaya, 1983); (Grossgheim, 1939); (Tzvelev, 1976); (Hulten & Fries, 1986).

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. Map boundaries were determined as follows: For an accurate definition of the western and southern borders (state border of Russia was used); for the eastern border (Malyshev & Peshkova, 1990), (Malyshev & Peshkova, 1979), (Hulten & Fries, 1986); for the southwestern border (Mayshev & Peshkova, 1990), (Hulten & Fries, 1986), (Tzvelev, 1976); for the northern border (Malyshev & Peshkova, 1990), (Hulten & Fries, 1986), (Fedorov, 1974), (Ramenskaya, 1983). The boundaries of the three small polygons were determined according to: (Chochrjakov, 1985); (Hulten & Fries, 1986). Several points were not included in polygon area as they were considered possible invasion. Area map also takes into account ecology data from the .Description..
