Basic contents:

Vector map. Area of species distribution is shown by polygons, and sporadic distribution by points. Zones of weediness are shown by polygons.

Accuracy of classifier:

The weed area is subdivided into two zones, one representing species distribution, and the second where weed is considered a serious pest. Points represent locations where sporadic occurrence has been reported. The zones of harmfulness were established according to criteria of occurrence (% of fields where this species is found) and abundance (expressed as projective cover of this species in the field [in % to the field area]) where the occurrence of this species exceeded 20% with its abundance (projective cover) more than 15% (Tanskii et al., 1998).

Method of map production:

Published literature was reviewed, including Atlases, monographs and papers. The areas of general distribution and harmfulness were determined according to the following sources: Volkov (1935), Hulten & Fries (1986), Nikitin (1983) and coordinated with the limits of the arable land map (Koroljeva et al., 2003). Occurrence data were obtained from herbarium specimens, floras, monographs and papers. Sites of sporadic districution were determined according to the following sources: In the Far East (Kharkevich, 1988); In the northern regions of the European part of Russia (Tolmachev, 1976); In the Caucasus (Grossgheim, 1950); In Siberia, Latvia and Lituania (Malyshev & Peshkova, 1994). In all other territories the following sources were used: Belozerov (1966), Bogachev et al. (1964), Gusev (1968), Dorogostaiskaya (1972), Krupkina & Onipko (1985), Motekaitite (1985), Shults (1976) and Yurova (2001). Data were then compiled through scanning and geo-referencing to develop a composite vector map. The biologist, together with the GIS specialist, drew a composite weed distribution area based on compiled data.
