Aerobiological station of Klaipeda (21[degrees]07'32 E, 55[degrees]45'20 N) is located near the coastal zone in the western part of Lithuania.
Aerobiological monitoring in Lithuania has started only in 2003, a lot later than in bigger European countries, so data range is smaller.
According to the long-term data collected in Klaipeda Aerobiological Station such situation was determined for 39% of plants pollen types.
According to aerobiological situation the amount of pollen changes from approximately more than 2 000 up to 34 000 pollen [m.
The mean of many years of aerobiological monitoring data shows principled season of birch pollen (Fig.
Basing upon the data of birch pollen season of three Lithuanian aerobiological station and general dates of birch flowering in Lithuania one has revealed the existence of the coincidence of general phenological situation in Lithuania and pollen season.
The conference has provided the premier interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the field of wildlife and aerobiological science.
Most aerobiological studies focus on the variation of pollen and fungal spore concentrations because of the allergenic effect of these particles (i.
