Date of creation:



1:20 000 000.

Accuracy of a map:

Map is based on maps having the following scale: 1:20 000 000, 1:25 000 000and on data from herbarium specimans.

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 points. Locations of species are represented by points.

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 (V.L.Komarov Botanical Institute, St.-Petersburg).

Method of map construction:

The species is distributed, mainly, in territory of China, Mongolia and Japan. In territory of the former USSR there is northern part of species area within the limits of which the species occupies the territory of the Far East and the south of Siberia. The area is submitted as a contour limited with west steppes of Kazakhstan, from the east - Ochotskoe and Japanese Seas. In the north the species occupies the territory concerning the low part of the rivers Ob, Yenisei and Lena, except for high mountains of Altai. The southern border of the area coincides with frontier of the former USSR. As a material for construction of the area the data of herbaria (Biological-Soil Institute of Far East Division of Russian Academy of Science; Komarov Bot.Inst.) and the published maps of area (Kharkevich, 1989, Flora of the Siberia, 1994, Nikiforova, 1988) were used.
