Accuracy of map:

It is created on information taken from the open published literature and maps of scale 1: 33 000 000.


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

Basic content:

Vector map consists of two thematic layers describing a zone of distribution and zone of high disease severity on the cucurbits.

Accuracy of the classifier:

The area represents the disease distribution where Bacterial Leaf Spot of Cucurbits has been revealed according to scientific publications. The zone of high disease severity is determined in those regions where epiphytotics arise sporadically, and more than 20% of plants are diseased.

Method of map production:

The map is compiled by results of the analysis of the open published materials. The disease distribution is shown on map in all territories of the Russian Federation (the Moscow and Voronezh Regions, Stavropol and Krasnodar Territories), in Moldova, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine (Vzorov, 1938; Izrail.skii, 1960; Gorlenko, 1966; Bilai et al., 1988; Yagudin, Shklyar, 1979; Kiryukhina, 1980; Vlasov, 2005). The zone of high disease severity includes Moldova (Vlasov, 2005). Specification of a configuration of borders of the disease area is executed on maps of the cucumber distribution, proposed by N.V Terekhina (2005), and pumpkin distribution, proposed by N.V Terekhina & E.I.Lomova (2004).
