Abstract:

Results of the study of pollen particles in the atmosphere are presented. A fraction of clusters, which consist of two and more pollen grains, of the total number of pollen particles entering the atmosphere is estimated. It is shown that although the anemophilous plants exhibit morphological peculiarities that prevent cluster formation, many similar clusters were formed in all experiments. The fraction of pollen grains could exceed 50% of the total number of pollen grains entering the atmosphere.

Keywords:

pollen, anemophilous plants, atmospheric aerosol, clusters
