Aerobiology

Aerobiology is a branch of biology that studies airborne organisms and airborne biological particles, for example, pollen and spores.

In 2002, algae and other small water-borne organisms were discovered to inhabit clouds. A large cloud has about as much water as a shallow lake of the same geographic size.

An important medical application of aerobiology is the study of the transmission of airborne diseases.
