Basic contents:

The map is a vector file consisting of polygons and dots. The localities of the species are represented by the dots; the area of possible species distribution is represented by the polygons.

Accuracy of the qualifier:

The dots represent information on the species localities according to published sources and herbarium specimens. The polygons are based on generalized information from published sources and herbarium specimens.

Method of the map construction:

The data on the species distribution were obtained from the database of the species localities coordinates included in the Information Retrieval System "Crop Wild Relatives in Russia" (STC Informregistr 0229905883, 1999) and from published maps by G.A.Kopaneva in "Atlas of medicinal plant ranges and resources in the USSR" (Tolmachev, 1983), Svjaseva in "Ranges of trees and shrubs of the USSR" (Sokolov et al., 1980), V.I.Kurbatskiy in "Flora of Siberia" (Polozhij, Malyshev, 1988), P.B.Klimov in "Vascular plants of the Soviet Far East" (Kharkevich, 1996), Koropachinskiy, Vstovskaya (2002).
The species has a disjunctive range. The borders of the main range part in southern Siberia and Far East are drawn after Svjaseva (Sokolov et al., 1980). Borders in southern Siberia are corrected after Kurbatskiy (Polozhij, Malyshev, 1988), and according to herbarium specimens referred to in the database of the Information Retrieval System; in Far East after Klimov (Kharkevich, 1996). The borders of the East Siberian part of the range in the middle course of the Lena River and lower courses of the Vilyui and Aldan rivers are drawn after Svjaseva (Sokolov et al., 1980) and Kurbatskiy (Polozhij, Malyshev, 1988). Small polygons in East Siberia and Far East are constructed after Kopaneva (Tolmachev, 1983) and Svjaseva (Sokolov et al., 1980). Solitary species localities in East Siberia are represented by dots.
