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 Rumex acetosella exceeds 20% with its abundance 2-3 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 (1945), A.I. Tolmachev (1976), S.S. Kharkevich (1989), I.M. Krasnoborov & L.I. Malyshev (1992). 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 (1945) (southern boundary), A.I. Tolmachev (1976) (northern boundary), S.S. Kharkevich (1989) (eastern and northern boundaries), I.M. Krasnoborov & L.I. Malyshev (1992) (northern and southern boundaries). The sporadic distribution is given according with E. Hulten & M. Fries (1986), A.A. Grossgeim (1945), A.I. Tolmachev (1976), S.S. Kharkevich (1989), I.M. Krasnoborov & L.I. Malyshev (1992). The zone of weediness is determined after V.V. Nikitin (1983), T.N. Ul.yanova (1998), I.T. Vasilchenko & O.A. Pidotti (1975), M.G. Agaev (1988), A.Ju. Doronina (2000), O.E. Kravchenko (2000), N.A. Kudravzev, L.A. Zaizeva & A.A. Dmitriev (2000), A.E. Rodionova (2001) 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").
