The field of Aerobiology is often considered the "microbiology" of the atmosphere. It is the study of the movement of biological particles (bioaerosols) or products of organisms within the atmosphere or within the indoor environment. By its very nature, the field of aerobiology is interdisciplinary with meteorology and aerosol physics at its core and with applications in the fields of agriculture, plant pathology, allergy, public health, immunology, palynology, biochemistry, and microbiology. The following are some useful links to aerobiology sites. See allergy links, and links to current pollen counts for additional web sites.
