About this book

This is the first book to summarize all aspects of allergenic pollen: production, atmospheric distribution, and health impacts, as well as the means of monitoring and forecasting these phenomena. Based on a four-year effort by a large group of leading European scientists, this book highlights the new developments in research on allergenic pollen, including the modelling prospects and effects of climate change. The multidisciplinary team of authors offers insights into the latest technology of detection of pollen and its allergenic properties, forecasting methods, and the influence of allergenic pollen on the population. The comprehensive coverage in this book makes it an indispensible volume for anyone dealing with allergenic pollen worldwide. Readers involved in environmental health, aerobiology, medicine, and plant science will find this book of interest.

Reviews

“This book is based on a four-year effort of European scientists to summarize production, atmospheric distribution, and health impacts of allergenic pollens, as well as new developments in research on the modeling prospects and effects of climate change. … This book is written for internists and pediatricians as well as specialists in allergy and immunology to increase the quality of the operational pollen forecasts.” (Delara Babaie, World Allergy Organization, worldallergy.org, April, 2015)
