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

Basic content:

Map is a vector file consisting of points. Locations of species are represented by points.

Accuracy of qualifier:

Light-colored points represent species locations referenced in published sources. Dark-colored points represent locations from which herbarium specimens were taken.

Method of map construction:

The majority of the natural area of the species lies in the western part of North America. Within the former USSR, the species occurs in the northwest. The mapped distribution area consists of points representing species locations in the south of the Kamchatka peninsula and on the Kurilian and Komandorsky islands. The species distribution area was constructed using herbarium data (BIN, VIR, GBS) and Kharkevich (1987).
