"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 dots (sporadic distribution). Zone of weediness is shown by polygon.

Accuracy of the classifier:

Area of the species is divided into zones of the main distribution, sporadic distribution, and weediness.

Procedure of map drawing:

Area and zones of weediness are outlined on the blank map by results of the analysis of cartographic materials published in the open literature. Maps of L. suaveolens area by Chikov P.S. (1983), Volkov A.N. (1935), Tolmachev A.I. (1976), Kharkevich S.S. (1992) have been used. A map from Chikov P.S. (1983) is used as a basis as Volkov's map made in 1935 has been now considerably extended according to Tolmachev A.I. (1976) and Kharkevich S.S. (1992). In the Far East Chikov's map (1983) is slightly expanded in places, where dots of the species records on Kharkevich's map (1992) are dense, adjoining to border of the area depicted by Chikov P.S. (1983). Places of sporadic distribution are shown according to maps drawn by Chikov P.S. (1983), Volkov A.N. (1935), Kharkevich S.S. (1992), Tolmachev A.I. (1976) and after literature data (Karavaev M.N., 1958; Dorogostaiskaia E.V., 1972; Kozhevnikov J.P., 1978; Khokhryakov A.P., 1978). The zone of weediness is allocated after literature data. Criterion of its allocation is the indication of the weed as frequently meeting in fields of the Non-Chernozem zone (Shlyakova E.V., 1979), dangerous weed of grain crops in Byelorussia (Kozlovskaia N.V. & Simonovich L.G., 1966), dangerous weed on tea plantations in Transcarpathia (Bubryak I.I., 1957), the most widespread weed having occurrence to 70% in Latvia (Rasin.sh A. & Taurinya M., 1972), the weed having 3-4 points of abundance in Murmansk Region (Shlyakova E.V., 1961), malicious in the Novgorod Region with abundance of 3-5 points and occurrence of 75-100% (Ul.yanova T.N. et al., 1992), the weed having 80% of occurrence in Leningrad Region (Luneva N.N. et al., 2004).
