specialist-biologist L.A. Mikhailova, GIS-specialist M.I. Saulich

Date of creation:



1:20 000 000

Accuracy of map:

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

Basic contents:

Vector map, consisting of 3 layers and legend. Zones of distribution and disease severity are shown by polygons.

Accuracy of classifier:

Distribution and zones of severity were determined by analyzing open-published materials. Area is subdivided into zones of strong, moderate and weak disease severity.

Method of map production:

Published literature was reviewed, including Atlases, monographs and papers. Occurrence data were obtained from herbarium specimens, floras, monographs and papers. Data were then compiled through scanning and geo-referencing to develop a composite vector map. The biologist, together with the GIS specialist, drew a composite weed distribution area based on compiled data.
