THE PRINCIPAL AIRBORNE AND ALLERGENIC POLLEN SPECIES IN TIMIŞOARA

By Nicoleta IANOVICI

Abstract

The most predominant source of allergens in the outdoor environment is pollen, the male gametophyte of flowering plants. Allergenic pollen has been identified in many flowering plant species including grass, weed, tree and crop species. Occurrence of pollens is monitored almost throughout Europe. We report here the results of the monitoring of airborne pollen concentrations throughout 1999 to 2007 from Timişoara (România). A total of 18 allergenic pollen types were identified of which Ambrosia artemisiifolia pollen showed maximum concentration. Pollens of many plants located in public or private gardens may cause pollinosis in predisposed individuals. In this study we suggest a list of recommended plants for public and private green
