Here is a sampling of our photomicrographs of pollen common in the various areas of the world. In this article are samples from our library of over 240,000 photographs of mold, pollen, allergens, and other airborne and forensic particles available in our bioaerosol laboratory.

Here are a few samples of common pollen allergens and the plants and flowers from which they derive. We pair color photographs of the plant with microphotographs of each plant's pollen grains.

Included also are photographs of plants and matching pollen from other areas in the U.S., Canada, Spain, France, and Mexico, and from other countries. Included are pollen and plants include the New York Hudson Valley. We include links to detailed articles about individual pollen and plant species.

We also provide a MASTER INDEX to this topic, or you can try the page top or bottom SEARCH BOX as a quick way to find information you need.
