MAP: SOIL TYPES
Detail from "Map of Soils of Ukraine" inserted into sleeve at back of Volodymyr Kubijovyc (Ed.), Ukraine: A Concise Encyclopaedia, University of Toronto Press, 1971.
The dash-dot border between Ukraine north of the Danube and Romania south, really lies in the middle of the Danube, but has been placed by the Encyclopedia below the river so as to enhance the border's visibility.
Changes introduced below that were not in the original: the country of Moldova has been labelled, its border with Ukraine on the east and Romania on the west has been emphasized, the most westerly of Ukrainian towns on the Danube — Reni — has been inserted, the soil type labels have been taken from the legend in the Encyclopedia map and inserted into the map detail below, and Snake Island (the only island in the whole of the Black Sea that stands away from the mainland, and belonging to Ukraine) has been labelled.
