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 - 1:10 000 000 - 1:80 000 000.

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:

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:

Published maps of the species area (Malyshev, Peshkova, 1979; Koropachinsky, 2002; Tolmachev, 1983; Sokolov, Svjazeva, 1986; Hulten, 1986) added with data of herbaria (Vavilov Institute of Plant Industry, Komarov Botanical Industry) were used as material for construction of the area.
The area is submitted as few ranges - the basic eurasiatic range, big and small Caucasian and Crimean ones. The basic range covers a significant part of the European part of the former USSR, separate regions of the south of Western Siberia and a small part in the east of Central Asia. Northern part of the basic range includes southern regions of Karelian-Lappish and Dvinsky-Pechorsky floristic areas. Northern, east and southeast borders of a contour are carried out by generalization of the available fact data. The northeast part of range includes southern areas of Western Siberia. In the south the border of this range practically does not come to the south of a steppe zone of vegetation. The Crimean range includes set of the points which are taking place in a southern part of the Crimean peninsula. The big Caucasian range includes the majority of points of territory of all Caucasus, except for set of sites of the species in territory of Transcaucasia. These points are divided from sites of species within the limits of the big Caucasian range by hills of the Big Caucasian ridge and incorporated into small Caucasian range. The points which were not included into borders of ranges, represent individual sites of species beyond the scope of an area.
