Australian Bioaerosols

We are interested in measurement of the biological content of the air at 
selected sites in northern Australia. Studies that provide an indication 
of the quantities and types of pollens, fungi and bacteria in the air are 
of interest.
Appropriate samplers appear to be the Burkard spore trap (or similar) for 
pollen and fungi and the Andersen sampler (or similar) for bacteria. 
Bacterial identification need only be of gram-negative and gram-positive 
species and perhaps the genus of the more abundant species.
We would appreciate hearing from Australian groups or individuals with 
experience or capability in this area.
