[Pyłek platanu w powietrzu wybranych miast Polski w 2018 r.]Pollen of plane in the air of selected cities of Poland in 2018 Alergoprofil 2018; 4(14): 101-104. DOI: 10.24292/01.AP.144271218
The course of plane pollen season in Bialystok, Bydgoszcz, Drawsko Pomorskie, Olsztyn, Opole, Szczecin, Warsaw and in Zielona Gora in the year 2018 was presented. Measurements were performed by the volumetric method (Lanzoni or Burkard pollen sampler). Pollen season was defined as the period in which 98% of the annual total catch occurred. In most of the cities, the plane pollen season in 2018 started in the second decade of April. The highest airborne concentration of 87 pollen grains/m3 was noted in Zielona Gora on the April 28th and in Opole (85 pollen grains/m3) on the April 29th. The high pollen count of plane has a local character resulting from the number of trees in cities. The highest risk of pollen allergy associated with the presence of airborne plane pollen was found in Zielona Gora, Opole, Warsaw and Szczecin.
