Accuracy of map:

Map is based on data from 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. Points represent locations of species.

Accuracy of classifier:

Points represent locations from which herbarium specimens at the Komarov Botanical Institute and the N.I. Vavilov All-Russian Institute of Plant Industry (VIR) were taken.

Method of map production:

This species was introduced into cultivation, has escaped, and is now naturalized in the wild. Therefore, points based on herbarium specimens, rather than the polygon, characterize species distribution. The data on distribution of the species were taken from a database of species locations (N.I. Vavilov Institute, 1992) and herbarium specimens.
