Date of creation:



1:20 000 000.

Accuracy of a map:

Map is based on data from herbarium specimans and on maps having the following scale: 1:8 000 000 - 80 000 000.

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:

Lidht-colored points are locations referenced in literature sources. Dark-colored 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 literature sources, herbarium specimans, political boundaries and ecological description.

Method of map construction:

Location and area of distribution of the species is based on published maps and analysis of herbarium materials from the Komarov Botanical Institute, Vavilov Research Institute ot Plant industry and Moscow State University. Literature used included: Grossheim (1945), Hulten (1986), Tolmachev (1983), Shishkin (1937), Tsvelev (2000).
