Accuracy of map:

Map was created using maps of scale: 1:20,000,000-1:80,000,000 and herbarium specimens.

The projection:

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

Basic contents:

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 samples were taken.

Method of map construction:

Lathyrus pisiformis is distributed throughout Central Europe, the Caucasus, Central Asia and Southwestern Siberia. Within the former USSR, the species is distributed throughout the European part, the Caucasus and Siberia. The distribution area consists of three ranges: Karelian, European-Asian and Caucasian. The Caucasian range includes Ciscaucasia. The Karelian range includes the eastern Karelian-Murmansk floristic area. The European-Asian range includes northern, central and southern Russia, Western Siberia and the western areas of eastern Siberia (up to Lake Baikal). The points not included in the ranges represent individual species locations that lay outside the general distribution area. In order to construct the species distribution area, data from the Altajskiy State University herbarium (Barnaul), the herbarium of the Department of Botany at the State University of Rostov, the Tomsk State University herbarium, the VIR herbarium and the following published maps of species distribution were used: Hulten & Fries (1986), Malyshev & Peshkova (1976), Malyshev & Peshkova (1979), and Grossgeim (1952).
