The distribution of a taxon is given in a map and additionally displayed in a condensed format. This presentation combines the distribution area of a taxon together with its status in an abbreviated form.
Please note: maps and data for Bryophytes are not yet complete. Caveats:
- data include accepted names of taxa for Europe only (with atlantic islands and European part of the Caucasus), but not yet synonyms nor data for the non-european mediterranean countries.
- as the distribution in Russia is not given for standard areas, the maps do not show Russian records yet, except for the exclave Kaliningrad and for the North Caucasus.
The IUCN red list categories for single areas (at present only for Bryophytes) are given in a separate distribution string which combines the area abbreviations with the standard IUCN Red List Categories abbreviations.
