Basic contents:

Vector map. Area of distribution shown by polygons (main distribution). Zone of weediness shown by polygons.

Accuracy of classifier:

Area of species is divided into main distribution, weediness, and sporadic distribution areas. Zone of weediness allocated according to criteria of occurrence and abundance (Tanskii et al., 1998), i.e., where the field abundance (projective cover) is more than 15%.

Method of map production:

Area and zone of weediness outlined on a blank map based on results of the analysis of references and cartographic materials published in open literature. Reference data used as a basis (TSvelev, 1976; Nikitin, 1983; Maevskii, 1954) for the map. The zone of main distribution in the European part of Russia allocated according to literature data (Taliev, 1935; Baranova et al., 1992; Geideman, 1954; Dorogostaiskaya, 1972; Minyaev, 1970; Tikhomirov, 1975; Orlova, 1977; Rubtsova, 1972; Blagoveshchenskii, 1966; Ramenskaya, 1969; Shishkin, 1955). Area northern border specified according to Tolmachev (1964). Apecies distribution in Siberia allocated according to literature data (Koroleva et al., 1973; Kushnirenko et al., 1949; Krasnoborov & Kashina, 1979; Popov, 1957; Malyshev & Peshkova, 1979). Its distribution in Middle Asia allocated according to publications (Pavlov, 1956; Ten, 1974; Urozhok, 1975). Apecies distribution in the Far East based on Voroshilov (1966), Tolmachev (1966, 1974). Zone of weediness based on
Nikitin (1983). Sporadic distribution areas determined according to Herbaria (Moscow State University, Barnaul State University) and literature (Tolmachev, 1964; Dorogostaiskaya, 1972).
