Accuracy of map:

Map was created using maps of natural scale 1:15,000,000-1:100,000,000 and information taken from published literature.


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

Basic contents:

Vector map. Area of distribution is marked by polygons (main distribution) and points (sporadic distribution). Zone of weediness is marked by polygons.

Accuracy of classifier:

Area of the species is divided into main distribution, weediness, and sporadic distribution areas. Zone of weediness is established according to occurrence (% of fields where this species is found) and abundance (Tanskii et al., 1998), i.e., where the occurrence of the species exceeded 50% with a field abundance (projective cover) of 4-5 points.

Mapping Procedure:

The map was created following the analysis of published cartographical materials and literature. The map of E. Hulten & M. Fries (1986) was used as a prototype, supplemented by maps of distribution from A.A. Grossgeim (1939), A.I. Poyarkova (1953), A.I. Tolmachev (1974), S.S. Kharkevich (1987), and L.I. Malyshev (1979). The northern, southern, western and eastern boundaries of the area were outlined according to E. Hulten & M. Fries (1986) and corrected according to V.L. Komarov (1934) (northern, southern, western and eastern boundaries), A.I. Poyarkova (1953) (northern boundary), S.S. Kharkevich (1987) (southern and eastern boundaries), A.A. Grossgeim (1939), R.R. Shreder (1941), B.K. Shishkin (1952), N.V. Pavlov (1956), P.N. Ovchinnikov (1957), V.V. Nikitin & A.М. Gel.dikhanov (1988) (southern boundary), E.I. Bordzilovs.kii (1940), B.K. Shishkin (1949), and Т.S. Geideman (1975) (western boundary). The sporadic distribution was determined according to E. Hulten & M. Fries (1986), A.A. Grossgeim (1939), A.I. Poyarkova (1953), A.I. Tolmachev (1974), L.I. Malyshev (1979), and S.S. Kharkevich (1987). The zone of weediness was determined according to I.T. Vasilchenko & O.A. Pidotti, V.V. Nikitin (1983), T.N. Ul.yanova (1998), G.I. Bazdyrev et al. (2004), and T.A. Shatalov (1987) and specified according to data on abundance, frequency of occurrence or weediness of the weed taken from the below-mentioned references (except .Manuals. and .Flores.).
