Date of creation:



1:20 000 000.

Accuracy of map:

Map was created based on information taken from open-published literature and maps of scale 1:13 000 000 - 1:80 000000.


"Alber's Equal Area Conic for the 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 weed is considered a serious pest. Points represent locations where sporadic occurrence has been reported. Zone of weediness was allocated according to criteria of occurrence (% of fields where this species is found) and abundance (Tanskii et al., 1998), i.e., where the occurrence of this species exceeded 50% with its field abundance (projective cover) being more than 15%.

Method of map production:

A map of R. repens distribution in Russia from Hulten & Fries (1986) was used as a prototype. It was corrected according to the following literature data on the species distribution in Russia: Ul.yanova (1988), Nikitin (1983). The zone of main distribution in European Russia and adjacent CIS countries was defined according to Hulten & Fries (1986) and Poyarkova (1956) and supported by the following sources: Geideman (1954), Shishkin (1957), Ramenskaya (1960), Blagoveshchenskii (1966), Minyaev (1970), Dorogostaiskaya (1972), Tikhomirov (1975), Klirosova & Noskova (1975), Shlyakova (1978), Rubtsov (1981), Baranova et al. (1992), Orlova (1997), Bakin et al. (2000), Grigor.evskaya (2000), Rodionova (2000). The species distribution in the North Caucasus and Transcaucasia was also confirmed by the materials of Galushko (1978) and Grossgeim (1939). Its ooocurence in the North Ural was confirmed by data of Tarshis et al. (1976). The species distribution in Siberia was confirmed according to the following sources: Malyshev & Peshkova (1979, 1993), Popov (1957), Buddo (1969), Koroleva et al. (1973), Fedotkin et al. (1978), Krasnoborov & Kashina (1979), Nesterova et al. (1982), Krasnoborov (2001). R. repens distribution in the Caspian Depression was corrected according to Vasil.chenko & Pidotti (1975); in North Kazakhstan according to Vasil.eva & Matsenko (1964); in Middle Asia according to Nikitin (1983); in the Russian Far East according to the following sources: Voroshilov (1966), Tolmachev (1966) and Khokhryakov (1976). The zone of weediness was defined according to Nikitin (1983) and was adjusted according to data on weed occurrence, abundance, or harming ability taken from below references (except .Keys. and .Floras.). Sporadic distribution areas were determined according to herbarium materials and the following sources: Malyshev & Peshkova (1993), Poyarkova (1956), Hulten & Fries (1986).
