A completely automated meteorological station has been operating at the Botanical Garden and Arboretum of University of Rome Tor Vergata since 1991. As of March 1996, the meteorological station was integrated with a volumetric pollen trap. The new airborne pollen monitoring station operates all year round, together with another centre located in Latium. This new centre will evaluate pollen dispersal in relation to climatic data, floristic and anthesic spectra and the pollen allergy incidence in the south-eastern area of Rome. The characteristics of this new station along with the first data collected are presented and discussed. According to an educational program developed at the Botanical Garden, activities linked to allergenic plants have been carried out with primary and secondary school as well as university students.
