Abstract

Aeropalynological survey was conducted for two years, between September 2006 to August 2008 by using Burkard portable spore trap. A total of 35 pollen types were identified. The pollen grains belonged to 26 angiospernic families (24 Dicotyedons and 2 Monocotyledons). Dicotyledons taxa contributed maximum number of pollen grains as compared to monocotyledons. A comparative account of two years observation indicate that pollen of Poaceae ranked first followed by Asteraceae, Mimosaceae and Cassia type. Maximum pollens type were trapped during winter season followed by summer, autumn and rainy seasons.
