Accuracy of map:

Map was created using the geographical coordinates from which specimens were gathered.


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

Basic contents:

Vector map consisting of 1 base and 3 thematic layers. The species distribution area is shown by polygons and points.

Accuracy of qualifier:

Points represent locations from which herbarium materials from the V.L. Komarov Botanical Institute were taken and locations mentioned in published references. The polygon is based on generalized information on species distribution.

Method of map production:

The following sources were used to determine the species distribution area: herbarium materials of the V.L. Komarov Botanical Institute, Shelyag-Sosonko (1977), Grossgeim (1939), Malyshev & Peshkova (1990), and Hulten & Fries (1986). In the European part of the former USSR, the species is distributed throughout steppe and forest-steppe zones. In Ural, the distribution area overlaps the zone of the mixed woods. In Kazakhstan, the eastern border of the distribution area is the Torgay hollow. A separate distribution area occurs in the foothills and low mountain belts of Tien Shan, Pamir-Alaj and Kopet Dagh. In the Caucasus, the species is distributed everywhere except Colhis and the Kura lowlands.
