Abstract

Cupressus and Juniperus airborne pollen grains, belonging to the Cupressaceae family and causing respiratory system allergy by inhalation, have an important place among aeroallergens. In this study, airborne pollen studies were carried out in Turkey, and the monthly changes in Cupressaceae pollens rates in 57 regions were evaluated. Results of the studies showed that the highest numbers of Cupressaceae pollen grains were recorded between march and may.
