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 - 1:60 000 000.

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:

The area of the species is constructed on the basis of the published maps of the area of species (Svjazeva, 1986; Koropachinsky, 2002; Moesel, 1965), added by the factual data from herbarium collections (Vavilov Institute of Plant Industry). The basic part of the area is in territory of Japan and China (northern Manchzhuria). In territory of the former USSR the species is distributed on the Far East - in Zeya - Bureinsky and Ussuriisky areas. Thus, the area within the limits of researched territory is a northeast part of the general area of the species and is submitted by the uniform range uniting sites of species. From a southwest the range is limited to frontier of the former USSR, from the east - to Japan Sea. The northwest border of range is carried out by generalization of all available data.
