Data of creation:




Exactness of map:

The map was created using maps to the scale of 1:50,000,000, 1:10,000,000.


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

Basic content:

Vector map. Locations of species are represented by points; area of possible distribution of species is represented by polygons.

Exactness of classifier:

Points of different colors represent locations of species drawn from literature and herbarium materials.

Method of map construction:

Points represent locations of species determined according to the Electronic atlas, .Animal and plant biodiversity of Siberia., and the V.L. Komarov Botanical Institute Herbarium. Polygons were created using species distribution data for floristic regions found in the Flora of European part USSR (Fedorov, 1974) and Poaceae USSR (Tzvelev, 1976). of the final map legend is bi-colored. Dark points represent locations from which herbarium specimens were taken. Light points represent locations of species discussed in literature. The polygon is the result of integrating various published maps; for the western and south borders, the maps in Flora of European part USSR (Fedorov, 1974) and Poaceae USSR (Tzvelev, 1976) were used; for the eastern border, the Electronic atlas, .Animal and plant biodiversity of Siberia., was used; for the northern border, point data from the herbarium of V.L. Komarov Botanical Institute, from Flora of European part USSR (Fedorov, 1974), and from Poaceae USSR (Tzvelev, 1976) were used. Borders were corrected to follow the coastal line. Area map was created using ecology data from .Descriptions..
