Accuracy of map:

Based on data from herbarium specimens and on maps having the following scale 1:20, 000,000 - 1:25,000,000.

Basic contents:

Map is a vector file consisting of polygons and points. Locations of species are represented by points, area of possible distribution of species is represented by polygons.

Accuracy of classifier:

Points represent locations of the species referenced in literature sources and from herbarium specimens. Polygons are based on generalized information from literature sources and herbarium specimens.

Method of map production:

Species location data were obtained from database of site coordinates of the species (N.I. Vavilov Institute, 1992), from maps published by V.V. Busik in "Flora of the Central Siberia" (1979), by N.N.Kachura in "Vascular plants of the Soviet Far East" (1987) and by N.Friesen (1988). The species has a disjunctive area. The borders of area near Bajakal Lake were drawn according to map published by V.V.Busik (1979) and expanded according to map published by N. Friesen (1988). Borders of the other polygons in Kazakhstan, Southern and Western Siberia were constructed according to map published by N. Friesen (1988) and expanded using information of herbarium specimens kept in IRS database. The borders of parts of the area in the Far East were drawn according to map published by N.N. Kachura (1987). We did not include points isolated from the basic area located at the border of Russia with northern Kazakhstan and the Far East in the final area.
