This review summarizes information on 30 aeroallergens gathered from 27 NAPCA reports. The major aeroallergen, ragweed, is the cause of more than 90 percent of the pollinosis in the U.S. and is the major subject of investigation. This review surveys the effects of aeroallergens on humans, animals, plants, and materials, notes the sources of these pollens, and suggests methods for their eradication. The standard method for pollen sampling, the gravity slide method, is discussed, as well as other methods that have been devised for special sampling situations. Substantial bibliography and tables.
