Date of creation:



1:20 000 000.

Accuracy of map:

It is created on materials of maps of natural scale 1:15 000 000-1:100 000 000 and on information taken from the open-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 shown by polygons (main distribution) and by dots (sporadic distribution). Zone of weediness is shown by polygons.

Accuracy of the classifier:

Within the weed area the zones of weediness are shown according to occurrence and abundance (Tanskii et al., 1998) - occurrence of Lathyrus tuberosus exceeds 50% with its abundance 4-5 numbers.

Procedure of map drawing:

The map is made by results of the analysis of the open-published cartographical materials and literature. The map of E. Hulten & M. Fries (1986), has been taken as a prototype, being supplemented by maps of distribution from A.N. Volkov (1935), A.A. Grossgeim (1952), A.I. Tolmachev (1976), S.S. Kharkevich (1989). The northern, southern, western and eastern boundaries of area are outlined according with E. Hulten & M. Fries (1986) and amplificated according to A.A. Grossgeim (1952) (southern boundary), A.I. Tolmachev (1976) (northern boundary), S.S. Kharkevich (1989) (eastern and northern boundaries). The sporadic distribution is given according with E. Hulten & M. Fries (1986), A.A. Grossgeim (1952), A.I. Tolmachev (1976), S.S. Kharkevich (1989), M.G. Popov and data of herbariums BIN RAN (LE) and SpbGU (LECB). The zone of weediness is determined after V.V. Nikitin (1983), T.N. Ul.yanova (1981; 1993; 1998), I.T. Vasil.chenko & O.A. Pidotti (1975) and specified according to data on abundance, frequency of occurrence or weediness of the weed, taken from the below-mentioned references (except "Manuals" and "Floras").
