The pollen component of atmospheric aerosol has been studied in the air of Novosibirsk during the vegetation period of 2004. Taxonomic composition, the dates of ingress of pollen of various taxons of anemophilous plants into the atmosphere, pollen number and mass concentrations have been determined upon blossoming. It has been established that during the entire vegetation period the pollen component of atmospheric aerosol is represented by both single pollen grains and their agglomerates. The aerodynamic characteristics of the individual pollen grains of anemophilous plants and their agglomerates have been estimated. The agglomerate composition was determined for the pollen aerosol of Novosibirsk.
