Accuracy of map:

Map was created using 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. Locations of species are represented by points.

Accuracy of qualifier:

Dark-colored points represent locations from which herbarium samples were taken.

Method of map construction:

The species is mainly distributed within Europe and in mountainous areas of the Caucasus and Central Asia. Within the former USSR, the species distribution area is divided into three regions. The northeastern region unites species locations in Northwestern Russia and the Baltic countries. Species locations in Southern Russia, Ukraine, Moldova and the Caucasus comprise the southwestern region. The Central Asian region includes species locations in mountainous areas of Central Asia. Isolated points that were not included in these regions represent sites at which the species occurs as a weed plant. The species distribution area was mapped using herbarium data (Komarov Botanical Institute and Vavilov Institute of Plant Industry) and the following published data on species distribution: Shishkin & Bobrov (1948), Kamelin et al (1981), and Tsvelev (2000).
