Pollen research not be sniffed at

nd imaging system. The Atlas of Living Australia is a partnership between CSIRO, Australian museums, herbaria and other biological collections, the Australian Government, and local community groups.

The Atlas of Living Australia is a national initiative focussed on making Australia's biodiversity information more accessible and usable online.

"This technology will be a key part of that resource for researchers and the public and will aid conservation and ecology. We still know so little about our environment. It really is a race against time to get the information we can." said Dr Lovell.

The microscope system, located at the Australasian Pollen and Spore Atlas at ANU in Canberra, is one of an increasing number of automated imaging systems for identifying particular groups of animals and plants.

"We know people are going to love seeing pollen up close at the exhibition" he said.

Visitors to the 'Pollen Under the Microscope' exhibition will learn that:

one-third of the food we eat comes from plants pollinated by animals some bees 'buzz-pollinate' flowers, vibrating them to shake the pollen out one in five Australians suffers from hay fever and wattle pollen is often incorrectly blamed.
