Accuracy of map:

Map was created using maps 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 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 samples (BIN, VIR) were taken.

Method of map construction:

Within the former USSR, the species distribution area is disjunctive and consists of three ranges: Crimean, Large Caucasian and Small Caucasian. In the Crimea, the species is distributed throughout the southern Crimean peninsula and the Caucasus, mainly in Western and Eastern Transcaucasia. In order to construct the species distribution area, data from herbaria (BIN, VIR), published maps of species distribution (Grossheim, 1952) and published data (Galushko, 1980) were used.
