Accuracy of map:

Map was created based on materials of maps of natural scale 1:40 000.000.


"Alber's Equal Area Conic", 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:

Area is subdivided into zones of strong and frequent development (3-4 times per 10 years) and weak development.

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. Information on the life cycle of the pathogen and host-plants was gathered from Peresipkin (1969), Mathre (1997) and Ishkova et al. (2000). Zones of harmfulness were determined according to Ishkova et al. (2000), Rassadina (1971), Chumakov & Sidorenko (1972), Sanin (1995) and Novozhilov & Zakharenko (2000).
