A map of Phylloxera in the Caucasus from 1889

September 29, 2015 Leave a comment

I could not resist posting one more Phylloxera map, this time from the Caucasus.  I have no idea what anything means but I suspect the green areas are those of cultivation and the three types of red dots represent the state of the Phylloxera infection.  Perhaps because of mountainous terrain some areas are not infected.  If you click on the map you will be taken to Flickr where you may zoom in.

Map of an individual Phylloxera “spot” in a Zinfandel vineyard in California

The final Phylloxera map for today stems from an United States Department of Agriculture Bulletin focused on the Phylloxera in California published in 1921.  This map indicate the spread of Phylloxera in a Zinfandel vineyard by indicating the state of each individual vine.  Thus dead vines are represented by solid circles whereas the varying states of the other vines is indicated by a letter.  After looking at the legend, I find it is easy to understand the map.  I hope you enjoyed these four different Phylloxera maps.

A color coded map of the spread of Phylloxera in the Gironde from 1868 to 1877

The previously published map of the progress of Phylloxera in Northern Portugal during 1880 uses solid color to indicate the intensity of the devastation from Phylloxera at a given time.  The map featured in this post illustrates the spread of Phylloxera in the Gironde over time using color coded stars.  At first glance, I even thought the stars were those tiny foil stickers so often used in elementary school.  This map reflects a more complicated objective and I honestly have a difficult time understanding the chronology without constantly referring to the legend.

Here is a close up of the legend.  I do not yet understand how the color scheme was devised.

A map of the progress of Phylloxera in Northern Portugal during 1880

It is Phylloxera map day! I like this particular map of the progress of Phylloxera in Northern Portugal during 1880 because of the color coding.  It looks like a bullseye.
