The importance of phenological and aerobiological researches in the diagnosis and therapeutic management of allergic diseases have been established all over the world. The knowledge of aerobiology at local, regional and global levels is prerequisite for effective and efficient diagnosis and treatment of the various allergic symptoms. Globally and in India it is estimated that 20-40 per cent people suffer from one or the other allergic disease. So it is a National health problem. In order to adapt avoidance strategy towards plant allergens, it is essential to identify the local plants and their flowering periods to correlate with the symptoms of the allegic patients. In the present book we have attempted to provide phonological and aerobiological details of allergenically significant plants of different geographical regions of India. The Atlas is aimed at to provide siple guidelines with their botanical and vernacular names to allergy practioners, researchers, environmentalists, aerobiologists and to allergy sufferers. This will help the clinicians to select the appropriate allergens for diagnosis and immunotherapy to which patients would have been exposed. Contents - Introduction List of Plants - 1.
