Basic contents:

Vector map consisting of 1 base and 2 thematic layers. The species distribution area is shown by polygons and points.

Accuracy of qualifier:

Points represent species locations referenced in published literature and from which herbarium specimens were taken. The general distribution area was created using published literature and herbarium materials.

Method of map production:

Kharkevich (1984) and Hulten & Fries (1986) were used to determine the species distribution area. Within the former USSR, the species has spread from its area of origin to the European part, Siberia, the Far East, the Caucasus, and Central Asia. Natural, wild-growing populations still occurs in the Far East and Eastern Siberia. In the north, the border of the species distribution area coincides with the border of the Arctic tundras; in the east, the distribution area extends to North America; in the southeast, the distribution area covers the Central range of the Kamchatka peninsula; in the west, the distribution area covers the Yakut hollow. In the Primorski territory and in southern Khabarovsk, the species is non-native, but naturalized populations of foxtail barley are present.
