The expert-botanist - T.N. Smekalova, the GIS-expert - G.V. Talovina.

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 - 1:25 000 000 - 1:85 000 000.

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:

The basic part of the species area distributed in territory of Japan and China. On the territory of former USSR it is northwest and boreal parts of a natural area of species: in Eastern Siberia the species is distributed in Daursky area, on the Far East - in wood and owood margins coenosises in basins of Zeya, Bureya, Uda, Ussuri rivers, on Sakhalin - in southern part of island. The area is submitted as the polygon covering set of points of sites of species. As a material for construction of an area the data of herbarium collections were used - from Biological-Soil Institute of Far East Division of Russian Academy of Science; Komarov Bot.Inst., Vavilov Inst.of Pl.Ind., and also the published maps of species area were used (Vascular plants of Far East, Flora of Siberia, Flora of the Central Siberia, Nikiforova). North and east bordersof the area are carried out by generalization of an available factual material on species distribution. The western part of the area is submitted by set of sites on islands to the south of Kuriles. The southern border of the area coincides with state frontier of the former USSR.
