Variations in urban forest allergy potential among cities and land uses

Highlights Natural forests composition can have a substantial impact on pollen allergenicity in cities. Cities developed within Pinaceae forests tend to have lower allergenic potential. Forests/open spaces had slightly higher allergenic potential than developed areas. On average, less than 10 % of city leaf area is within the lowest allergenic class. Abstract Tree pollen with allergenic potential …
