Accuracy of map:

It is created on information taken from the map of scale 1:33 000 000.


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

Basic contents:

Vector map is composed of 4 thematic layers. Zones of distribution and severity are shown by polygons.

Accuracy of the classifier:

According to the method of Vlasov & Larina (1982), three zones of severity of WWRMV are established. In the zone of high severity, the disease distribution reaches 40% and frequent epiphytoties occur; in the zone of moderate severity, the disease development does not exceed 20% and epiphytoties are rare. In the zone of low severity, the nidal distribution of WWRMV does not exceed 10%.

Method of map production:

The area and severity zones have been marked on a blank map by results of the analysis of the published materials. The zone of high severity includes the North Caucasus (Krasnodar and Stavropol Territories, Rostov Region), and Transcaucasia. The zone of moderate severity comprises Ukraine, Belorussia, Middle Volga Region, Voronezh and Penza Regions of Russia,Kazakhstan and Central Asia. The zone of low severity includes Moldova, Baltic States, Moscow and Ryazan Regions of Russia (Vlasov & Larina, 1982; Dubonosov et al., 1975; Panarin, 1985; Tsyplenkov, 1999). The correction of severity zones has been performed by the vector map of the largest arable land distribution within the territory of the Former Soviet Union (Koroleva et al., 2003).
