The basic contents:

Vector map consisting of 1 base and 3 thematic layers. The species distribution area is shown by polygons and points.

Accuracy of qualifier:

Points represent locations from which BIN herbarium materials were taken and locations mentioned in published references. The polygon is based on generalized information on species distribution.

Mapping procedure:

The species distribution area was determined using species locations reported by the BIN herbarium and published maps from Grossheim (1939), "Cereals of Ukraine" (1977), Savkina et al (1982), Kharkevich (1985), Tzvelev (1974), and Malyshev & Peshkova (1979, 1990). Within the European part of the former USSR and Siberia, the species is distributed throughout all territories except the steppe zone. In Central Asia and Kazakhstan, the distribution area intersects the middle mountain belt and high mountains of Tien Shan, as well as the mountains of the Ala Taus and Pamir-Alay ranges. In the Caucasus, the species is distributed throughout all territories except Kolchis and the Kura lowlands.
