Date of creation:



1:20 000 000.

Exactness of a map:

The map was created using maps that had the following scale 1:10 000-1:80 000 000.

The projection:

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

Basic contents:

Map is a vector file consisting of polygons and points. Locations of species are represented by points, area of possible distribution of species are represented by polygons.

Exactness of classifier:

Light-colored points are locations referenced in literature sources. Dark-colored points are locations of the species that were as reported from created database VIR (N.I.Vavilov All-Russian Research Institute of Plant Industry) and BIN (the Komorov Institute of Botany).Polygons are based on literature sources, herbarium samples, political boundaries and ecological description.

Method of map construction:

For construction of the area of Vicia angustifolia the published maps of the part of the area (Grossheim, 1952; Hulten, Eric and Magnus Fries, 1986; and see in description of species) and herbaria data (Komarov Botanical Institute (BIN), N.I. Vavilov All Russian Institute of Plant Industry (VIR), St.-Petersburg) were used. Point area of Vicia angustifolia includes locations of the species identified on the base of VIR and BIN herbarium. Final area of species is constructed by the unification of determined points of species locations and literary data (Flora of the USSR, 1948; Flora of Kazakhstan, 1961; Flora of Tadzhikistan, 1978; Brezhnev, Korovina, 1980; Flora of the European part of the USSR, 1987; Flora of cultivated plants, 1999). The area has disjunctive character and consists of four polygons and separate points. The greatest polygon occupies the Caucasus, European territory of former USSR (except Arctic and Caspian lowland), Kazakhstan. In the south there are three polygons arranged to mountain regions of Central Asia. The points, which were not included into borders of areas, represent secondary, invasive sites of species.
