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.

Method of map production:

Published literature was reviewed, including Atlases, monographs and papers. Occurrence data were obtained from herbarium specimens, floras, monographs and papers. The area of species distribution is based on the map by Hulten & Fries (1986) and adjusted in the Caucasus according to Grossgheim (1962). The limits of the zone of harmfulness was determined according to Nikitin (1983) and Nikonov (1975) and then adjusted according to the sources below as well as the limits of the Arable Land Map (Koroljeva et al., 2003). 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.
