Accuracy of map:

Map was created using a map of scale 1:20,000,000 and herbarium specimens.

The projection:

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

Basic contents:

Vector map. Area of species distribution is shown by polygons, while actual location occurrence is shown by points.

Accuracy of classifier:

Point data were obtained from published sources and herbarium specimens. Polygons are based on published sources, herbarium samples, and field surveys by the authors. Light-colored points represent species locations referenced in published sources. Dark-colored points represent locations from which herbarium samples (V.L. Komarov Botanical Institute) were taken. Polygon was created by generalizing information from published sources, herbarium specimens, political boundaries and ecological descriptions.

Method of map production:

Published literature was reviewed, including atlases, monographs and papers. Occurrence data were obtained from herbarium specimens, floras, monographs and papers. Kharkevich (1989) and the herbarium at the V.L. Komarov Botanical Institute were used to determine the species distribution area. The main part of the species distribution area lies outside the former USSR in Manchuria, China, Japan, and Korea. Species locations within the former USSR lie in the areas of Zeya, Bureinsky and Ussuriysky. Distribution in the Zeya and Bureinsky areas includes the pools of the rivers in Zeya and Bureya and the watercourse of Amur. The Ussurijsky area unites the points that occur along the river basin of Ussuri. Both areas represent the northern and northeastern parts of the natural species distribution area. Data were then compiled through scanning and geo-referencing to develop a composite vector map. The biologist, together with the GIS-specialist, drew a new plant distribution area based on compiled data.
