Example text

In North-west Europe the production curve tends to be bimodal as two main groups of grass species reach maximum flowering at different times during the summer. Changes in the timing of pollen seasons The general regularity of the flowering sequence in plants means that the timing of someone’s allergic symptoms indicates the allergens ivhich are likely to be responsible. However the timing of the seasons is not static. Different Lveather patterns from year to year, especially in temperate areas, mean that the start dates and durations of pollen seasons for some plant groups can differ markedly.

Geographical and temporal variations in outdoor aeroallergens Pollen calendars and pollen-production curves Pollen seasons vary greatly geographically because of contrasts in climate, topography and vegetation. In addition to these natural variables differences in agriculture and land use also exert influences o n the ahundance and spectrum of airborne pollen and spores. Data o n the concentration and seasonality of pollen types provides valuable information f o r use in interpreting the appearance of symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis and seasonal asthma, and is also helpful f o r allergic people when they travel to other regions.

Certain fungi are adapted to relatively dry habitats and can use water that has been absorbed from the air by hygroscopic materials such as skin scales and cotton materials. These xerophytic fungi may inhabit carpets and soft furnishings even in dry homes. Other types of fungi need free water, for example from leaks o r condensation that forms in damp places such as in basements, bathrooms or on poorly insulated external walls. In order to be inhaled the fungal spores must become airborne. This requires dispersal from the substrate and is usually achieved through some mechanical disturbance.
