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.

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:

For construction of species area in territory of the former USSR materials herbaria (Vavilov Institute of Plant Industry (SPb, Russia), Komarov Botanical Institute (Spb, Russia)) and materials of the published maps of species area (Grossheim, 1952) were used. The area has well expressed disjunctive character and consists of four ranges - Crimean, Caucasian, two Asian, and separate points. The Crimean range unites points of sites of species in the south of the Crimean peninsula. The Caucasian range is constructed by generalization of all available data on distribution of species on Caucasus. Western-middle-asian also and central-middle-asian ranges unite all the points of species sites in southwest part of Middle Asia and in the south of central parts of Middlel Asia. Southern borders of ranges coincide with southern border of former USSR.Points, which are not included into borders of ranges, represent invasive habitats of species.
