This response has implications for several aspects, including allergy and plant distributions. These are mildly allergenic but cross-react with birch, as the major allergens of alder ( A h g l ) ,birch (Bet v 1)and hazel (Cor a 1)have many features in common (Ipsen et al. Thenet effect would be an extended season for this aeroallergen group. Climatic shifts over Europe and other regions would encourage changes 1095 in the distribution of allergenic plants. For instance ragweed (Ambrosia),which requires warm, long summers for seed maturation, has spread rapidly over many areas in Europe over the last decade and is now found as far north as The Netherlands.

4). It is based on the European aeroallergen network, originally formed in 1986. The database was opened in Vienna in 1988 to receive weekly updates of daily average pollen concentrations for the main allergenic types measured at sites in 12 founder countries. By 1993 the system had expanded to include 19 countries, with a total of 190 representative sites. Currently pollen counts from approximately 264 selected European sites are sent weekly to the databank, which can be accessed by all contributors for help with forecasting and information on line 24 h a day, throughout the year.

In other cases, for example with Aureobasidium spores, more active air movements need to be generated, examples being cleaning or demolition. Similarly fungi in upholstery release spores when the furniture is sat on. If the fungus is inhabiting the ventilation system air movement through the system can produce fungus spore aerosols (Bernstein et al. 1983; Pan et al. 1992). In addition many fungi have active sporedischarge mechanisms, such as in the wood-rotting basidiomycetes which can grow in the structural wood of houses.
