Institute Presentation


The creator and coordinator of pollen monitoring network in Lithuania is Siauliai University (SU). Three present aerobiological monitoring stations (located in Vilnius, Klaipeda and Siauliai) and research laboratories are fully supplied with all the necessary equipment needed for pollen fixation, identification and spread of information. Three regular workers are always working in pollen research. Students are also involved in scientific investigations. The collected data is delivered to EAN database whereas forecasts on aerobiological situation are sent to European Pollen Information network. Results of the monitoring are being used by the allergists, published in newspapers, television and radio.

Despite the fact that up-to date aerobiological monitoring is being done in Lithuania only for five years so far (since 2003), Siauliai University, which is the coordinator of the action of monitoring, is successfully participating in international projects and other scientific-related activities. Pollen monitoring with related environment protection was developed in III A South Priority project „Cross-border Cooperation of Universities of Latvia - Lithuania - Belarus in Environmental Protection" (CBC ECO-HOUSE). We are currently participating in COST ES0603 “EUPOL” action. We are liable for scientific researches in Lithuania Department of the Environment in order to evaluate the correlation between the allergic cases due to pollen impact and climate change and to anticipate means for prevention, by realising the national strategy of the UN on the common climate implementation up to 2012.

In collaboration with scientists from Finish meteorological institute (FMI) under the leadership of Mikhail Sofiev we have learnt to use SILAM system. Researchers of SU have already done some joint works with FMI on modelling pollen carrying to Lithuanian territory.
