"Alber's Equal Area Conic for the USSR", 9, 1001, 7, 100, 0, 44, 68, 0, 0.

Basic content:

Vector map. Area of distribution is shown by polygons (main distribution) and by dots (sporadic distribution).

Accuracy of the classifier:

Area is subdivided into zones of main and sporadic distribution.

Method of map production:

The area of distribution is established according to the analysis of the open published maps and literature. A map compiled by Hulten E. & Fries M. (1986) is taken as a prototype. General distribution of this species is supported by data of Nikitina V.V. (1983). The German Knotgrass distribution in the European part of the USSR is confirmed by the literature data (Geideman, 1954; Tolmachev, 1962; Shishkin, 1965; Minyaev, 1981; Shlyakova, 1982; Tsvelev, 2000; Rodionova, 2001; Shmidt, 2005). The northeast border of distribution of the species is defined after the data of Tolmachev (1976). The species meets along the Russian Black Sea coast (Zernov, 2002), in Transcaucasia (Grossgeim, 1949) and Crimea (Rubtsov, 1972). The species has been brought to the Far East (Tolmachev, 1974; Tolmachev, 1966). The German Knotgrass litters cultural crops with abundance 2 points and lower; therefore, a zone of its weediness is inexpediently to allocate.
