Exactness of map:

The map was created using herbaria date.

The projection:

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

Basic contents:

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

Exactness of classifier:

Dark-colored points represent locations of the species reported in the VIR database (N.I. Vavilov All-Russian Research Institute of Plant Industry).

Method of map construction:

In order to construct the distribution area of Bromopsis divaricata, data from the N.I. Vavilov All Russian Institute of Plant Industry (VIR) in St. Petersburg were used. The species is endemic to the Caucasus (Abkhazia). The final species distribution area is represented by one polygon (green line), which corresponds to published data on species distribution (Tzvelev, 1976; Brezhnev and Korovina, 1980). The distribution area borders take into account the ecological preferences of the species.
