Data of creation:




Exactness of map:

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

Basic contents:

Map is a vector file consisting of polygons and points. Points represent locations of species; area of possible distribution of species is represented by polygons.

Accuracy of classifier:

Light-colored points represent locations referenced in published sources. Dark-colored points represent locations from which herbarium samples were taken (N.I. Vavilov All-Russian Research Institute of Plant Industry).
Polygons are based on published sources, herbarium samples, political boundaries and ecological descriptions.

Method of map production:

Published literature was reviewed, including atlases, monographs and papers. Occurrence data were obtained from herbarium specimens, floras, monographs and papers. Data were then 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. In the final map, dark-colored points represent locations from which herbarium samples were taken. Light-colored points represent locations of the species referenced in published sources. Polygons resulted from integrating published species distribution maps with political boundaries (Tzvelev, 1976). Points not included in the polygon represent invasion by the species.
