Accuracy of map:

Map was created using herbarium specimens and maps of scale 1:40,000,000.

The projection:

"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 a polygon and points. Locations of the species are represented by points, while the area of possible distribution of the species is represented by a polygon.

Accuracy of qualifier:

Light-colored points represent species locations referenced in published sources. Dark-colored points represent locations of species from which herbarium samples were taken. Polygon is based on generalized information from published sources, herbarium specimens, political boundaries and ecological descriptions.

Method of map construction:

Lathyrus krylovii is an endemic species of Western Siberia. Its distribution within the former USSR includes the bottom watercourse of the Ob River in Altai. Published maps of species distribution (Polozhy & Malyshev, 1994) and data from the Vavilov Institute of Plant Industry, Altai State University, and Tomsk State University herbaria were used to construct the species distribution area, which is relatively small and includes actual species locations within Western Siberia.
