Accuracy of a map:

Map is based 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:

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:

Setaria italica is cultivated plant in moderate and southern regions of the territory of former USSR. The species easily runs from cultuvated places and is distributed in region of cultivation of the crop on the broken localities and as a weed plant - in sowings of other crops. In the teritory of former USSR the area of species is submitted as the polygon covering moderate and southern regions. Southern, western and southeast borders of polygon coincide with border of former USSR, boreal border passes the altitude of Carpathian mountains, Upper Volga, Upper Dnepr and the south of Siberia. For construction of area the data of herbaria (VIR, BIN) and the literary sources (Flora USSR, 1934; Tzelev, 1976) have been used.
