Exactness of map:

Map was created using maps of scales 1:50,000,000, 1:30,000,000, 1:10,000,000, and 1:5,000,000.

Basic contents:

Vector map. Area of species distribution is shown by polygons; actual location occurrence is shown by points.

Accuracy of classifier:

Point data were obtained from literature and the locations from which herbarium specimens were taken. Polygons are based on literature, herbarium samples, and field surveys by the authors. Light-colored points represent locations of species referenced in literature. Dark-colored points represent locations of species that were determined using herbarium data.

Method of map production:

Published literature was reviewed, including atlases, monographs and papers. Occurrence data were obtained from herbarium specimens, floras, monographs and papers. Point area data were determined according to the following sources and herbaria: Grossgheim, (1939), Shelyak-Sosonko (1977), Tolmachev (1974), Malyshev & Peshkova (1979), Harkevich (1982), Hulten & Fries (1986), Rostov.s Botanical Garden, Voronezh.s reserve, and Voronezh.s University and Dzyubenko (2000). The polygon areas were determined according to the following sources: Tolmachev (1974), Ramenskaya (1983), Malyshev & Peshkova (1990), Tzvelev (1976), Pavlov (1956), Tolmachev (1964), Chochrjakov (1985), and Hulten & Fries (1986). The polygon area is disjunctive. General polygon was determined by integrating polygon maps, defining the western border according to the Russian border and maps found in Grossgheim (1939), Tzvelev (1976), and Hulten & Fries (1986); the eastern border according to maps found in Malyshev & Peshkova (1979), Malyshev & Peshkova (1990), and Tolmachev (1964); the southern border according to maps found in Hulten & Fries (1986) and the desert border (Tzvelev (1976) and Kovalevskja (1968)); the northern border according to maps found in Shelyak-Sosonko (1977), Tzvelev (1976), Hulten & Fries (1986), Malyshev & Peshkova (1990), Tolmachev (1964), Tolmachev (1974) and herbarium data. Several points were not included in the polygon area, as they could represent invasion. This species is adventitious in the Far East. Species locations within the taiga forest zone were determined according to Tzvelev (1976), except for sites along pond banks. Data were 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.
