Abstract : The total biological pollen and spore number concentration, per m3 , at the Mace Head Environmental field research station on the west coast of Ireland is presented for consecutive months from September 1993 to June 1994 using a continuous (with a resolution of 4 hours) Burkard volumetric spore sampler. Pollen grain and spore concentration per m3 are also presented for individual taxa (species). The biological aerosol concentration for clean (maritime), polluted (continental) and modified maritime air flows are interpreted with the support of the locally measured wind direction data together with air flow back trajectories from the Mace Head site.
