Date of creation:



1:20 000 000.

Accuracy of a map:

Map is based on maps having the following scale: 1:10 000 000 - 80 000 000 and on data from herbarium specimans.

The projection:

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

Basic content:

Map is a vector fail consisting of polygon and points. Locations of species are represented by points, area of possible distribution of species are represented by polygon.

Accuracy of the qualifier:

Lidht-colored points are locations referenced in literature sources. Dark-colored points are locations of species that were reported from herbarium samples. Polygon is based on generalized information from literature sources, herbarium specimans, political boundaries and ecological description.

Method of map construction:

Locations and area of distribution of the species are based on published maps and analysis of herbarium materials from the Moscow State University, All-Russian Vavilov Institute ot Plant industry, Rostov State University, Uljanovsk Educational State University. Literature used included: Hulten (1986), Cherepanov (1995), Shmidt, Baranova and others (1990), Grossheim (1945), Tsvelev (2000), Kharkevitch (1991). Final area consists of main polygon, two small poligons and separated points. Our point of wiew as for Humulus lupulus distribution practically coincides with V.M. Shmidt.s and E. V. Baranova.s opinion of species area. Main poligon includes the large part of Europaean part of former USSR, the Caucasis, an goes behind the Ural mountains, including south part of western Sibiria and forest-meadow communities of the Soutth-Eastern part of the Middle Asia. The smallest polygon is situated in foothills of Kopet-Dag mountains. Set of the points on the end of south of Ural mountains is included into the second small polygon. separated points, not included into the polygons, are meaning second, invasive points of habitat. Acording to literature data (Kharkevitch, 1991), on the territory of Far East, the species is invasive and it is included into adventive fraction of flora.
