Data of creation:




Exactness of map:

The map was created using maps of scale 1:50,000,000, 1:30,000,000, and 1:10,000,000.


.Alber's Equal Area Conic for Russia., 9, 1001, 7, 100, 0, 44, 68, 0, 0.

Basic content:

Vector map. Locations of the species are represented by points, while the area of possible distribution of the species is represented by a polygon.

Exactness of classifier:

Points of different colors represent locations of the species drawn from published literature and locations from which herbarium specimens were taken.

Method of map construction:

Point area includes species locations referenced in Tolmachev (1964) and Malyshev & Peshkova (1990), as well as original locations of the specimens at the V.L. Komarov Botanical Institute herbarium. Polygons were constructed using species distribution data from Tzvelev (1976). The final map legend is bi-colored. Dark points represent locations from which herbarium specimens were taken. Light points represent species locations referenced in published literature. Polygons contain integrated point data from Tolmachev (1964), Malyshev & Peshkova (1990), and the V.L. Komarov Botanical Institute herbarium. One point in the Far East was not included in the polygon because this location has not yet been verified. The distribution area map takes into account the ecological preferences of the species.
