Physical and biological properties of bioaerosol

Löndahl, Jakob LU orcid (2014) p.33-48
Abstract
Bioaerosols include bacterial cells and spores, viruses, pollen, fungi, algae, detritus, allergens and cell fragments. Bioaerosol particles are usually a small fraction of all aerosol particles in our surroundings, but their impact can be critical. They are a means for transmission of disease, they cause allergic reactions and they have effects on the global climate, ecology and biodiversity. This chapter provides an overview of the main types of bioaerosol particles, their sources, transport and sinks, and their potential effects on health and atmosphere.
