A one year survey of airborne pollen and spores in the neotropical city of Bogota (Colombia)



A one year survey of airborne pollen and spores in the neotropical city of Bogota (Colombia)



Allergologia et Immunopathologia 17(2): 95-104



A 1-yr study of potentially allergenic airborne biological particles was performed in Bogota. During June 1986-May 1987 the pollen count was 7626, contributed by 72 grain types. Among these, 24 taxa were identified. The majority of the grains came from imported trees; Cupressus spp. was the main contributor. Weed pollen counts, including the Compositae (ragweed), were low (4% of the total). The spore count was 13 164, almost twice as large as that of pollen.
