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). i.e., occurrence of L. vulgaris exceeds 10% with its abundance 2-3 points.

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.I. Poyarkova (1966), A.A. Grossgeim (1967), A.I. Tolmachev (1977), S.S. Kharkevich (1991), A.V. Polozhii & G.A. Peshkova (1996). The northern, southern, western, and eastern boundaries of area are outlined according with E. Hulten & M. Fries (1986) and amplified according to A.I. Poyarkova (1966) and A.I. Tolmachev (1977) (northern boundary), A.A. Grossgeim (1967) (southern boundary), S.S. Kharkevich (1991) (eastern and northern boundaries), A.V. Polozhii & G.A. Peshkova (1996) (northern and southern boundaries). The sporadic distribution is given according with E. Hulten & M. Fries (1986), A.I. Poyarkova (1966), A.A. Grossgeim (1967), A.I. Tolmachev (1977), S.S. Kharkevich (1991), A.V. Polozhii & G.A. Peshkova (1996). The zone of weediness is determined after V.V. Nikitin (1983), T.N. Ul.yanova (1981; 1998), I.T. Vasil.chenko & O.A. Pidotti (1975), M.G. Agaev (1988), O.E. Kravchenko (2000), N.A. Kudryavtsev, L.A. Zaitseva & A.A. Dmitriev (2000), A.E. Rodionova (2001), Yu.Ya. Spiridonov & S.Ya. Polyanskii (2001), being specified according with data on abundance, frequency of occurrence or weediness of the weed, taken from the below-mentioned references (except "Keys" and "Floras").
