Mapping symbols -- Atlas Florae Europaeae
New mapping symbols used from vol. 13 onwards
On the maps, the status of a taxon in the relevant grid cell is indicated with a special symbol. In the text, the corresponding sign designations are used in connection with the territory abbreviations to denote the status in a certain territory, as exemplified by "Fe" (Finland) below. In comparison to the previous volumes (10–12) of AFE, the symbols and signs denoting "probably extinct introduction" and "extinct introduction" are novelties.
|in maps||in text||explanations|
|Fe||native (including archaeophytes)|
|*Fe||status unknown or uncertain|
|[Fe]||introduction (established alien)|
|×Fe||probably extinct (or at least not recorded since 1950) native or archaeophyte|
|†Fe||extinct native or archaeophyte|
|[×Fe]||probably extinct introduction|
|?Fe||record(s) uncertain regarding identification and/or locality|
Old mapping symbols
Sixteen different types of symbols have been used in AFE volumes 1–11. If the map gives the areas of two or more taxa, the special symbols (+, x, ?, etc.) belong to the taxon marked by black dot, unless otherwise stated.
