Aerobiology is a branch of biology that studies organic particles, such as bacteria, fungal spores, very small insects and pollen, which are passively transported by the air (Spieksma, 1991). Foundations of modern biology There are five unifying principles In Biology, a spore is a reproductive structure that is adapted for dispersal and surviving for extended periods of time in unfavorable conditions Insects ( Class Insecta) are a major group of Arthropods and the most diverse group of Animals on the Earth with over a million described Pollen is a fine to coarse powder consisting of microgametophytes ( pollen grains) which produce the male Gametes (sperm cells of One of the main fields of aerobiology has traditionally been to measure and report quantities of airborne pollen as a service to allergy sufferers (Larsson, 1993). Allergy is a disorder of the Immune system often also referred to as Atopy.
In 2002, algae and other small water-borne organisms were discovered to inhabit clouds. See also 2002 (disambiguation Year 2002 ( MMII) was a Common year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar. Algae ( sing. alga are a large and diverse group of simple typically Autotrophic organisms ranging from Unicellular to Multicellular forms A large cloud has about as much water as a shallow lake of the same geographic size.
An important medical application of aerobiology is the study of the transmission of airborne diseases. A disease is an abnormal condition of an organism that impairs bodily functions and can be deadly It is known that many bacteria and viruses can be transmitted by spread through the air, possibly within droplets. The Bacteria ( singular: bacterium) are a large group of unicellular Microorganisms Typically a few Micrometres in length bacteria have A virus (from the Latin virus meaning Toxin or Poison) is a sub-microscopic infectious agent that is unable A drop or droplet is a small volume of Liquid, bounded completely or almost completely by Free surfaces Surface tension In addition, transmitted in this manner, and therefore this field is of interest in that application.
Aerobiology is a rapidly developing science, which also involves interactions with engineering and meteorology. Engineering is the Discipline and Profession of applying technical and scientific Knowledge and Meteorology (from Greek grc μετέωρος metéōros, "high in the sky" and grc -λογία -logia) is the Interdisciplinary
