Date of creation:




Accuracy of map:

Map was created using herbarium data and published maps of scale 1:25,000,000-1:30,000,000.

The projection:

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

Basic contents:

Vector map. Polygons and points represent distribution of species.

Accuracy of classifier:

The distribution area of the species is based on an analysis of published maps and herbarium materials. The base map was determined using the distribution map of Ribes pauciflorum (Shmidt, 1990) as well as herbarium data.

Method of map production:

Published literature was reviewed, including atlases, monographs and papers. Occurrence data were obtained from herbarium specimens, floras, monographs and papers. Data were then compiled through scanning and geo-referencing to develop a composite vector map. The biologist, together with the GIS-specialist, drew a new plant distribution area based on compiled data.
