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 (V.L.Komarov Botanical institute [LE] and M.V.Lomonosov Moscow State University [MW].). Polygon is based on generalized information from literature sources, herbarium specimens, political boundaries and ecological description.

Method of the map contruction:

In the former USSR, the species is distributed on stony-debris slopes of Altai and Middle Asian mountains. The species range is represented by the polygon embracing the dots of its actual localities. Western is drawn from generalization of available data from the Herbaria of V.L.Komarov Botanical institute [LE], M.V.Lomonosov Moscow State University [MW]. The eastern border of the range is adjusted according to published data (Flora of Siberia, 1994).The southern border of the polygon is the state border, the northern, as well as published sources of available data from the Herbaria of V.L.Komarov Botanical institute [LE], M.V.Lomonosov Moscow State University [MW], Flora of Siberia, 1994). The dots outside the polygon outline are adventive localities of the species beyond its natural range.
