Basic contents:

The map is a vector file consisting of a polygon and dots. The localities of the species are represented by the dots; the area of possible species distribution is represented by the polygon.

Accuracy of the qualifier:

The dots represent information on the species localities cited in published sources and information from herbarium specimens. The polygon is based on generalized information from published sources and herbarium specimens.

Method of the map contruction:

The data on the species distribution were obtained from the database of the species localities coordinates included in the Information Retrieval System "Crop Wild Relatives in Russia" (STC Informregistr 0229905883, 1999) and from maps published by V.V.Busik in "Flora of the Central Siberia" (1979), Friesen (1988).
The species has a disjunctive range. The borders of the range part in the Lake Baikal area are drawn according to V.V.Busik (1979) and extended according to Friesen (1988). The range borders in the West Siberia are drawn according to herbarium materials referred to in the database of the Information Retrieval System. We believe that the solitary species localities isolated from the main range in Yakutia in the Lena River basin should not be included in the polygon since these finds require additional study.
