Date of creation:



1:20 000 000.

Accuracy of a map:

Map is based on data from herbarium specimans, specified on data from literature sources.

The projection:

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

Basic content:

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

Accuracy of the qualifier:

Points are locations of species that were reported from herbarium samples (N.I.Vavilov All-Russian Research Institute of Plant Industry, Komarov Botanical Institute, Moscow State University). Polygon is based on generalized information from herbarium specimans literature sources, political boundaries and ecological description.

Method of map construction:

Area of Anthyllis macrocephala was constructed on the basis of herbarium collections data: (Vavilov Institute of Plant Industry, Komarov Botanical Institute, Moscow State University) and also on the basis of literature sources (Shishkin, 1945; Tsvelev, 2000; Fedorov, 1987, Majevsky, 1933; Galushko, 1980) by the generalization of all this data. The basic part of the area of is in territory of the Western Europe, and in territory of the former USSR there is a northeast part of common area.
The area of species is dated to the western part of researched territory, it has disjunctive character and consists of three ranges and separate points. The largest, European range in its northern part reaches the border of Ladozshsko- Ilmensky and Dvinsko-Pechorsky floristic regions; in the west part it is limited to frontier of the former USSR, in the south - to Black Sea (Shishkin, 1945; Fedorov, 1987). East border of this range is carried out by generalization of an available actual material. The Crimean range occupies a southern part of the Crimean peninsula. The Caucasian part of an area unites the sites of species, which are located in territory of Ciscaucasis and dated, mainly, to mountain and foothill territories of this region. The points which were not included into borders of ranges, characterize the sites which have been found in atypical habitats or remote geographical regions.
