Date of creation:



1:20 000 000.

Accuracy of the map:

It is created on materials of maps of natural scale 1:5 000 000 - 1:80 000 000 and on literature data.


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

Basic contents:

Vector map. Area is shown by polygons (main distribution) and by dots (sporadic distribution). Zone of weediness is shown by polygon.

Accuracy of the classifier:

Within the weed area the zones of main and sporadic distribution, and the zone of weediness, where L. amplexicaule is a pernicious weed, are shown.

Procedure of map drawing:

Areas of main distribution, sporadic distribution and weediness are established according to the analysis of the open-published maps and literature. The area of L. amplexicaule is based on the map taken from Hulten E. & Fries M. (1986). Limits of the zone of weediness are established according to Nikitin V.V. (1983), specified in accordance with data on abundance and frequency of the species occurrence taken from below mentioned references, and adjusted to the limits of arable lands. In accordance with data of Nikitin V.V., L. amplexicaule is characterized by great frequency of occurrence in tilled crops mainly in the North of the European part of the former USSR. Melnichuk O.S. & Kovalivska G.M. (1972) point out that L. amplexicaule belongs to the most widespread weeds in the forest-steppe and woodlands of the Ukraine.
