Exactness of map:

The map was created using a map of scale 1:60,000,000.

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.

Exactness of classifier:

Dark-colored points represent species locations reported in the VIR database (N.I. Vavilov All-Russian Research Institute of Plant Industry) and the BIN database (Komorov Institute of Botany).

Method of map construction:

To construct the distribution area of Ornithopus sativus, only herbaria data (Komarov Botanical Institute (BIN) and N.I. Vavilov All-Russian Institute of Plant Industry (VIR), St. Petersburg) were used. The species originated in West Europe and the Mediterranean basin, and its locations within the European part of the former USSR, the Caucasus and the Crimea represent the secondary area of the species. The secondary area of the species appears to have formed as a result of human activity that resulted in the introduction and naturalization of the species (Brezhnev & Korovina, 1980). The species may naturalize in the maritime areas of the Crimea and the Caucasus. The presented area was created by generalizing data. The presented area is based on all available published data (Schischkin & Bobrov, 1945; Grossheim, 1952; Phyodorov, 1987).
