Basic contents:

The map is a vector file consisting of 1 basic and 2 subject layers. The species range is represented by a polygon and dots.

Accuracy of the qualifier:

The dots represent information on the species localities: reliable data according to herbarium (1) and published sources (2); the polygon - generalized information on the species distribution from published sources and herbarium specimens.

Method of the map construction:

The data from the herbarium materials of LE, a published map of the range part (Polozhij, Malyshev, 1994), and published data (Shishkin, Bobrov, 1948; Yurtsev, 1986) were used for constructing the range of Hedysarum vicioides. The range consists of one polygon and dots. The species is confined to the East Siberia, namely to the Lena and Kolyma Rivers basins (endemic of Yakutia). The species records are also reported from the Far East. Penetrates into Arctic zone along river valleys.
