Accuracy of map:

Map was created using maps of scale 1:25,000,000 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 were taken (V.L. Komarov Botanical Institute, St. Petersburg).

Method of map construction:

The species distribution area covers territory in Manchuria, Korea and Eastern Mongolia. Within the former USSR, the species is distributed throughout the Far East (Zeya-Bureinsky and Ussurijsky areas) and Eastern Siberia (eastern Daursky). These areas represent the northern part of the natural species distribution area. The distribution area is represented by two polygons and separate points. The larger polygon covers the eastern part of the former USSR. The smaller polygon covers the south of the Sakhalin Island. The points separated from these polygons represent invasive habitats of the species. Published maps of species distribution (Kharkevich, 1989), species locations mentioned in published references (Polozhij & Malyshev, 1994; Malyshev & Peshkova, 1979) and data from the Komarov Botanical Institute (BIN) (St. Petersburg) herbaria were used to construct this distribution area map.
