A study was made of taxonomic composition, daily average concentrations, and daily dynamics of the content of atmospheric aerosol pollen component in the atmosphere of village Klutchi of the Novosibirsk region. During blossoming of arboreal plants the atmosphere contained the pollen of willow, poplar, birch, maple, pine, and fir-tree. The pollen of other arboreal plants (silver fir, alder, sea-buckthorn), grass (cereals, sedge), and the spores of horsetails was registered occasionally. The main contribution (up to 99%) to the mass concentration of the pollen component was made by the pollen grains of birch and pine. The daily average mass concentrations of pollen in the atmosphere varied from 0.3 to 57.8 mg per 1 m3 of air (in some samples of atmospheric aerosol, up to 85 mg), amounting during the mass blossoming of birch to 57% of the total daily average concentration of atmospheric aerosol.
