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, where Vicia hirsuta is pernicious.The zones of weediness are shown - established by criteria of occurence (50% of fields where this species is found) and abundance, expressed as projective cover of this species in the field (more than 15 % to the field area (Tanskii et al., 1998).

Procedure of map drawing:

The map is made by results of the analysis of the open-published cartographical materials and literature. The maps of E. Hulten & M. Fries (1986), V. N. Volkov (1935) were taken as a prototype, supplemented by maps of distribution from A. I. Poyarkova (1959), A. I. Tolmachev (1976), S. S. Kharkevich (1989) and materials of the monograph by E. V. Dorogostaiskaya (1972). The northern, southern, western and eastern boundaries of area are outlined according with E. Hulten & M. Fries (1986), V. N. Volkov (1935) and amplificated according to V. L. Komarov (1936) (northern, southern, western and eastern boundaries). The sporadic distribution given according with E. Hulten & M. Fries (1986), A. I. Poyarkova (1959), E. V. Dorogostaiskaya (1972), A. I. Tolmachev (1976), Kharkevich (1989). The zone of weediness is determined after V. N. Volkov (1935), V. V. Nikitin (1983) T. G. Buch and al. (1981) and specified according to data on abundance, frequency of occurrence or weediness of the weed, taken from the below-mentioned references (for exception "Manuals" and "Flores"). Within the weed area the zones of occurence and abundance (Tanskii et al., 1998) - occurence of Vicia hirsuta exceeded 40% with its abundance 3 - 4 numbers.
