Date of creation:



1:20 000 000.

Accuracy of a map:

Map is based 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 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 species is constructed on the basis of an available actual material from herbarium collections WIR and LE. The area has disjunctive character and consists of a few ranges: European, Crimean, Caucasian and two Central Asian. The European range includes territory of Moldova and western part of the Black Sea coast. The Crimean range unites sites of species in a southern part of the Crimean peninsula. The Caucasian range covers practically all territory of Caucasus. In territory of Central Asia distribution of species is dated for Kopet-Dag territory (small Central Asian range) and Tian-Shan maintains (the big Central Asian range), that is coordinated to the literary data (the Manual of plants of Central Asia). The points which were not included in borders of ranges, represent sites of plants of the species, which have run away from culture.
