Exactness of map:

The map was created using maps of scale 1:25,000,000-1:40,000,000.

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 polygons and points. Locations of species are represented by points; area of possible distribution of species is represented by polygons.

Exactness of classifier:

Light-colored points represent species locations referenced in published sources. Dark-colored points represent locations of the species reported in the VIR database (N.I. Vavilov All-Russian Research Institute of Plant Industry) and BIN database (the Komorov Institute of Botany). Polygons are based on published sources, herbarium samples, political boundaries and ecological descriptions.

Method of map construction:

In order to construct the distribution area of Elymus sibiricus, published maps of parts of the area (Harkevich, 1985; Malyshev & Peshkova, 1990) and herbaria data (Komarov Botanical Institute (BIN), St. Petersburg; N.I. Vavilov All-Russian Institute of Plant Industry (VIR), St. Petersburg) were used. The mapped distribution area created by generalizing this data consists of three polygons (green line), which correspond to published data on species distribution (Rodjevitz & Schischkin, 1937; Kovalevskaja, 1968; Fedorov, 1974; Shishkin, 1950; Tzvelev, 1976; Brezhnev & Korovina, 1980). The points not included in the general distribution area represent single sites of species occurrence. The distribution area borders take into account the ecological preferences of the species.
