Date of creation:



1:20 000 000.

Accuracy of a map:

Map is based on data from herbarium specimans and specified on maps having the following scale - 1:25 000 000 - 86 000 000.

The projection:

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

Basic content:

Map is a vector fail consisting of polygon and points. Locations of species are represented by points, area of possible distribution of species are represented by polygon.

Accuracy of the qualifier:

Lidht-colored points are locations referenced in literature sources. Dark-colored points are locations of species that were reported from herbarium samples. Polygon is based on generalized information from literature sources, herbarium specimans, political boundaries and ecological description.

Method of map construction:

The basic part of species area is in northeast China. Northern part of the area is situated in the limits of the former USSR. The area consists of the range uniting sites of species on the Far East, and separate points. Northern border of an area reaches an average watercourse of Amur river, western southern borders coincide with frontier of the former USSR, in the east distribution of the species is limited to Okhotsky sea. As a material for construction of an area the factual data of herbaria (Vavilov Institute of Plant Industry) and published maps of species area (Kharkevich, 1996; Koropachinsky, 2002 ) were used. Points beyond the borders of range specify sites of species outside the basic area.
