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 Trifolium repens 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.A. Grossgeim (1952), A.I. Tolmachev (1976), L.I. Malyshev & G.A. Peshkova (1979), S.S. Kharkevich (1989). 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 (1952) (southern boundary), A.I. Tolmachev (northern boundary), L.I. Malyshev & G.A. Peshkova (1979) (northern and suothern boundaries), S.S. Kharkevich (1989) (eastern and northern boundaries). The sporadic distribution is given according with E. Hulten & M. Fries (1986), A.A. Grossgeim (1952), A.I. Tolmachev (1976), L.I. Malyshev & G.A. Peshkova (1979), S.S. Kharkevich (1989). The zone of weediness is determined after V.V. Nikitin (1983), T.N. Ul.yanova (1981; 1993; 1998), I.T. Vasil.chenko & O.A. Pidotti (1975) 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").
