Accuracy of map:

Map was created using maps of scale 1:35,300,000-80,000,000 and on data from herbarium specimens.

The projection:

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

Basic content:

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

Accuracy of qualifier:

Light-colored points represent species locations referenced in published sources. Dark-colored points represent locations from which herbarium samples were taken (Moscow State University, Talovina's Degree work, 2000). Polygon is based on generalized information from published sources, herbarium specimens, political boundaries and ecological descriptions.

Method of map construction:

Location and area of distribution of the species is based on published maps and an analysis of herbarium materials from Moscow State University. Publications referenced include Hulten & Fries (1986), Cherepanov (1995), Shmidt (1990), and Tsvelev (2000).
