Accuracy of a map:

Map is based on data from herbarium specimans and specified on maps having the following scale - 1:10 000 000.

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:

Rubus caucasica is distributed in mountain forests of Caucasus. In territory of the former USSR the area of species is submitted as the polygon covering a significant part of Caucasus, except for extreme western and east areas (subtropics of southeast coast of Black sea and northwest coast of Caspian sea). South border of polygon coincide with border of the former USSR, northl border passes at altitude of Krasnodar territory and Nothern Caucasus. For construction of the area the data of herbaria (WIR, LE) and the published maps of the area (Grossheim, 1952) have been used.
