Example text

The phenological checking of the flowering period on location was done for the most interesting species from an allergo logical point of view. Our observations were carried out every 10 days in 1986 through carefully planned routes in the area next to the sampling station. MARCELLO scale has been used to express the intensity of flowering. With regard to Cupressaceae and Oleaceae it is not easy to distinguish the pollen of one species from that of the others,among each family. From the correlation between flowering and pollination period it comes out that Cupressaceae show 2 peaks:the first refers to Cupressus sempervi- rens and the second to Juniperus communis;similarly Oleaceae show 2 peaks:the former attributable to Fraxinus ornus and the later to Olea europaea.

On the eastern side it is bordered by the great escarpment from which a number of ephemeral rivers like the Kuiseb, Tsondab, Tsauchab and Koichab flow into the desert (Fig. 2). In the past some of these rivers have been obstructed by newly formed dunes sothat silt is deposited in In pans, vleis or floodplains by floodwaters coming from the escarpment. these sediments fossil pollen has accumulated over long periods of time. M. VAN ZINDEREN BAKKER initiated palynological research in the southern erg.

BeSides, the methods oftrappinEatmospheric pollen have been improved during the last few decades. The present study includes a survey of atmospheric pollen grains in the city of Alexandria with the aim of providing information that may be useful in the treatment of aeroallergies. With increasing tourist activity in Alexandria, information of its aerobiology should be available to physicians in order to advise their travelling patients of potential allergic material in its environment. 56 The trap was installed on the roof of the Botany Department, Faculty of Science; University of Alexandria (about 30 m above street level).
