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

Basic contents:

Vector map. Area of species distribution and zones of disease severity are shown by polygons.

Accuracy of classifier:

The area of the distribution of Uromyces sojae was recorded in some areas of soya cultivation.

Method of map production:

Scientists were given maps with boundaries of Oblasts and arable lands. After reviewing historic literature, species distribution was hand drawn on maps. If data were on the Oblast-level, distribution is on the Oblast level. In some cases, Oblast.s are further refined by boundaries of the Arable Land Map (Koroljeva et al., 2003). Hand drawn maps were scanned, georeferenced and vectorized. U. sojae Syd was recorded in some areas of soybean cultivation as follows: in the Northern Caucasus, the Far East, and Ukraine according to Kuprevich et al. (1975), Reifman (1971), Peresypkin (1989).
