Accuracy of map:

The map was created using maps of 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; areas of possible distribution of species are represented by polygons.

Accuracy of classifier:

Light points are locations of species obtained from the literature including: (Grossgheim, 1939); (Shelyak-Sosonko, 1977); (Tolmachev, 1974); (Harkevich, 1982); (Hulten & Fries, 1986). Dark points represent locations of species obtained from herbarium specimens and germplasm accessions of the N.I. Vavilov All-Russian Research Institute of Plant Industry. Polygons were created using data about the distribution of species in floristic regions from: (Fedorov, 1974); (Ramenskaya, 1983); (Tzvelev, 1976); (Pavlov, 1956); (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. Accurate definitions of west and southeastern borders were determined using state border of Russia, as well as the following sources: For the eastern border (Malyshev & Peshkova, 1990); For the southwestern border (Tzvelev, 1976), (Pavlov, 1956), (Hulten & Fries, 1986), (Shelyak-Sosonko, 1977); for the northern border (Tolmachev, 1974), (Hulten & Fries, 1986), (Fedorov, 1974), (Ramenskaya, 1983), (Malyshev & Peshkova, 1990), (Tzvelev, 1976). The polygon representing Caucasia.s distribution was determined according to: (Grossgheim, 1939). The polygon representing Crym.s distribution was determined according to: (Shelyak-Sosonko, 1977). The polygon representing Middle Asia.s distribution was determined according to: (Tzvelev, 1976). Area map was made taking into account ecological data from .Descriptions..
