Accuracy of map:

Map was created using herbarium specimens and maps of scale 1:20,000,000-1:50,000,000.

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 polygons and points. Locations of the species are represented by points, while the areas of possible distribution of the species are represented by polygons.

Accuracy of qualifier:

Points represent species locations referenced in published sources and locations from which herbarium specimens were taken. Polygons are based on generalized information from published sources and herbarium specimens.

Method of map construction:

The data on distribution of the species were obtained from a database species locations, the Information Retrieval System, "Wild-growing relatives of cultural plants of Russia" (NTC "Informregistr" #0229905883), and published maps in Sokolov et al (1980), Kharkevich (1996), and Koropachinskiy & Vstovskaya (2002).
The Padus maackii distribution area was constructed using generalization of data. The northern and western borders of the distribution area were expanded in accordance with herbarium materials and information stored in the Information Retrieval System.
