Accuracy of map:

Map was created using data from herbarium specimens and maps of scale 1:80,000,000.

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

Accuracy of qualifier:

Light-colored points represent species locations referenced in published sources. Dark-colored points represent locations from which herbarium samples were taken (N.I. Vavilov All-Russian Research Institute of Plant Industry, Komarov Botanical Institute). Polygon is based on generalized information from published sources, herbarium specimens, political boundaries and ecological descriptions.

Mapping procedure:

Locations and area of distribution of the species were mapped using published maps and herbarium materials from the Komarov Botanical Institute at the Vavilov Research Institute of Plant Industry. Sources consulted include Koropachinsky & Vstovskata (2002), Komarov (1939), and Poyarkova (1936).
