"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 weed area the zones of its weediness are shown, established by criteria of occurrence (% 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 occurrence of this species exceeded 50% with its abundance (projective cover) more than 15%.

Method of map production:

The zones of distribution and weediness are established according to the analysis of the published maps and literature. A map compiled by Chikov P.S. (1983) is taken as a prototype, being supported by Nikitin V.V. (1983), Hulten E. & Fries M. (1986), Ul.yanova T.N. (1981, 1998), Gubanov I.A. et al. (2004). The T. vulgare distribution in the European part of the former USSR is verified by a number of references (Maevskii, 1954; Shishkin, 1965; Vasil.chenko & Pidotti, 1975; Shlyakova, 1982; Tsvelev, 2000; Bakin et al., 2000; Grigor.evskaya, 2000; Zernov, 2002). Northern border of its distribution in the European part is corrected after some references (Mishkin, 1953; Tolmachev, 1977). Its distribution in Crimea is confirmed by Vul.f E.V. (1969) and Rubtsov N.I. (1972); in the Caucasus - by Grossgeim A.A. (1949), Vasil.chenko I.T. & Pidotti O.A. (1975). The species distribution in West Siberia is supported by Krylov P. (1949), Koroleva A.S. et al., (1973), Ul.yanova T.N. (1981), Terekhina T.A. (2000). Its inhabitance of East Siberia is confirmed by Karavaev M.N. (1958), Malyshev L.I. & Peshkova G.I. (1979), Anenkhonov O.A. (2001). The species meets seldom in the Far East, where it was introduced (Khokhryakov, 1985; Nikitin, 1983). It meets seldom also in Central Asia (Nikitin, 1983). The zone of weediness is established according to Shlyakova E.V. (1982) in Tver., Smolensk, Kaluga, Bryansk, Yaroslavl., and Kostroma Regions, where T. vulgare litters large areas of perennial forage grasses. The sites of sporadic distribution are depicted according to literature data (Glazkova, 2001; Tolmachev, 1962; Chikov, 1983; Hulten & Fries, 1986).
