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

Accuracy of the classifier:

Within the area of S. officinale, the zones of its weediness are shown, established by criteria of occurence (% of fields where this species is found) and abundance (expressed as projective cover of this species in the field (in % to the field area)) (Tanskii et al., 1998), i.e.; where the occurence of this species exceeded 20% with its abundance (projective cover) more than 15%.

Method of map production:

The areas of distribution and weediness of S. officinale are established according to the analysis of the open published maps and literature. The area of distribution is based on the map from the publication of E.Hulten & M.Fries (1986). Area of the distribution is extended further to the east according to V.L. Komarov & N.A. Bush (1939). The zones of weediness of S. officinale are established according to V.V. Nikitin (1983), being coordinated with the limits of arable lands. The sites of sporadic distribution of S. officinale within the European part of the Former Soviet Union are shown according to E.Hulten & M.Fries (1986) and A.I. Tolmachev (1976), in the Far East they are depicted after S.S. Kharkevich (1988). Sporadic distribution of this species in Siberia by L.I.Malyshev & G.A.Peshkova (1994), supported by the data of V.L. Komarov & N.A. Bush (1939), as well as that in the Caucasus by A.A. Grossgeim (1950), supported by the data of A.I.Galushko (1980) are included in the main area.
