Pollen count measurements are of high importance for prevention, individual treatment methods and epidemiological studies concerning pollinosis. During vegetation in 2008 in Łódź, the pollen of birch and pine family (mainly pine and spruce) was prevailing, followed by alder, grasses and nettle. Hazel and alder pollen appeared in the air about a month earlier than in previous years. The longest periods of the pollen presence in the air were recorded for: grasses (130 days), pine family (121 days), sorrel (114 days), birch (107 days) and nettle (101 days). Grains of ambrosia pollen were present in the aeroplankton of Łódź in numbers similar to previous years. The total number of Alternaria and Cladosporium spores was 79 2446 grains. The spores of Cladosporium were present in the air for 231 days and Alternaria for 181 days. The number of Alternaria spores constituted only 0.7% of the total yearly count of both mould taxons.
