Basic content:

Vector map. Area of distribution is shown by polygon (main distribution) and by dots (sporadic distribution). Zone of weediness is shown by polygon.

Accuracy of the classifier:

Within the area of Ch. suecicum, the zones of its weediness are shown, established by criteria of occurence (% of fields where this species is found) and abundance (expressed as projective cover of this species in the field (in % to the field area)) (Tanskii et al., 1998), i.e.; where the occurence of this species exceeded 20% with its abundance (projective cover) more than 15%.

Method of map production:

The areas of distribution and weediness of Ch. suecicum are established according to the analysis of the open published maps and literature. The area of distribution is based on the map from the publication of E.Hulten & M.Fries (1986). Within the European part the northern limit of the area is supported by the data of A.I.Poyarkova (1956) and A.I.Tolmachev (1976), southern limit of the area is established according to P.F.Maevskii (1954). Area of the distribution is extended further to the east according to V.L.Komarov & B.K.Shishkin (1936), the limits of its eastern part are depicted according to I.M.Krasnoborov & L.I.Malyshev (1992). The zones of weediness of Ch. suecicum are established according to V.V.Nikitin (1983), being coordinated with the limits of arable land. The sites of sporadic distribution of Ch. suecicum, which are not included in the main area, have been shown according to E.Hulten & M.Fries (1986), A.I.Tolmachev (1976) and I.M.Krasnoborov & L.I.Malyshev (1992).
