The projection:

"Alber's Equal Area Conic for Russia", 9, 1001, 7, 100, 0, 44, 68, 0, 0.

Basic contents:

The vector map consists of 1 base layer and 2 thematic layers. The area of the species is represented by polygons and points.

Accuracy of the qualifier:

Points show specific sites at which the species was found according to herbarium data and published references. Polygons showing the general distribution of the species were derived using generalized information from published references and herbariums.

Mapping procedure:

The map was created using a database of coordinates of sites at which the species was found, INFORMATION RETRIEVAL SYSTEM "Wild-growing relatives of cultural plants of Russia" (NTC "Informregistr" № 0229905883), and the published maps of N.N. Kachura (1987) in "Vascular plants of the Soviet Far East"; V.V. Busik (1979) in "Flora of the Central Siberia"; and N.V. Frizen (1987, 1988).

Sources of data:
