The Australian Aerobiology Working Group was supported by a grant from the Australian Centre for Environmental Analysis and Synthesis (ACEAS), a facility of the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) funded by the Australian Government National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS). Merck Sharp and Dohme provided additional independent untied co-sponsorship for the Working Group. The authors wish to thank the staff of ACEAS, TERN for the assistance in organising the Australian Aerobiology Workshops "Understanding Australian aerobiology to monitor environmental change and human allergenic exposure", North Stradbroke Island, Australia. We extend our gratitude to each member of the Working Group for active participation in this research effort; Dr Janet Davies (Principal Investigator), Prof. David Bowman (University of Tasmania), Dr Fay Johnston (Menzies Institute for Medical Research), Assoc.
