This study is intended to determine the annual dissemination means of the pollen grains in the Timisoara's atmosphere for the year 2000. In this study we present a pollenic calendar for the mentioned region. In the investigated area, the season with maximum pollen concentration was late summer-fall (August). In the first months of the monitoring period, prevailed the pollen coming from anemophile trees and in the last months the pollen coming from anemophile herbaceous plants. Ambrosia,

The most important anemophile taxa were: wooden magnoliates (14), herbaceous magnoliates (6), liliates (1) and pinnates (2). The monitoring supplied us with valuable information regarding the dissemination of some anthropophile species (Ambrosia) whose pollen is known as a strong allergen.
