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 weed area of Erysimum cheiranthoides 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) - where the occurence of this species exceeded 20% with its abundance (projective cover) more than 15%.

Procedure of map drawing:

The areas of distribution and weediness of Erysimum cheiranthoides are established according to the analysis of the open-published maps and literature. The area of distribution is based on the maps from the publications of E.Hulten & M.Fries (1986) and P.S.Chikov (1983). Northern limit of the area is depicted according to P.S.Chikov (1983). The areas of weediness are established according to O.N.Korovina (1982) and coordinated with the limits of arable land. Southern limit of the weediness zone is brought in correspondence with the southern border of the zone of coniferous forests according to E.V.Shlyakova (1982). The sites of sporadic distribution of Erysimum cheiranthoides in Central Asia and the south of the European part of the Former Soviet Union, in addition to the data of E.Hulten & M.Fries (1986), are depicted by P.S.Chikov (1983), in northern parts of the Far East they are established by S.S.Kharkevich (1988), in Caucasus by A.A.Grossgeim (1950), in Crimea by S.K.Kozhevnikova & L.V.Makhaeva (1976). The sites of sporadic distribution in northern regions of the European part of Russia and Siberia by E.Hulten & M.Fries (1986), by E.V.Dorogostaiskaya (1972) and N.G.Moskalenko (1970), as well as main part of them in the Far East by S.S Kharkevich (1988) are included in the main area.
