Accuracy of a map:

minimal territorial unit is regional (oblast) arable territories, which were selected by arable map, generalized to scale 20 000 000.

The projection:

"Alber's Equal Area Conic for Russia", 9, 1001, 7, 100, 0, 44, 68, 0, 0

Basic contents:

The vector map of area consists of layer with polygons.

Accuracy of the qualifier:

Maps were created on the base of generalized information about species distribution from published sourses (accuracy till regions).

The technique of drawing up of a map:

Area map of Garden radish Raphanus sativus L. var. sativus was made on the base of literature data (Atlas, 1960; State ., 1994, 2004) using map of arable territory of the USSR (The Computer., 2003). Area covers almost all arable territory of the USSR (Cultural flora, 1971; Vekhov, 1978; Matveev, Rubtsov, 1985;) Main plantations are situated in north-western and central zones of Russia, Siberia, the Ural zone (Cultural flora, 1971).
