Object specialist A.Yu. Doronina, GIS-specialist I.A. Budrevskaja.

Data of creation:



1:20 000 000.

Accuracy of map:

Map was created on based on materials of maps of natural scale 1:10 000 000-1:80 000 000 and literature data.


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

Basic contents:

Vector map. Area of species distribution is shown by polygons, and sporadic distribution by points. Zones of weediness are shown by polygons.

Accuracy of classifier:

The weed area is subdivided into two zones, one representing species distribution, and the second where the species is considered a serious pest. Points represent locations where sporadic occurrence has been reported.

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. The following literature was used to determine the area of F. tataricum: Pojarkova (1956), Tzvelev (1996) and Tolmachaev (1974). The following sources were used to determine the zones of harmfulness: Nikitin (1983) and Uljanova (1980).
