This was followed by a movement in the opposite direction resulting in the shifting of the Sahelian Sahara boundary some 350 km northward. The Namib Desert The--Namib-desert, well known for its remarkable endemic biota stretches as a narrow strip of less than 200 km wide for 2000 km along the southwestern coast of Africa. In its central part the southern erg consists of linear dunes 50-150 m high and more than 100 km long, running in a south-northerly direction. On the eastern side it is bordered by the great escarpment from which a number of ephemeral rivers like the Kuiseb, Tsondab, Tsauchab and Koichab flow into the desert (Fig.

Prof. of Florence Introduction We present the preliminary data of our research whose principal aims were: a)to check the correlation between aerobiological and phytogeographical data in our area; b)to clarify certain discordances,for example between the presence of some plants and the absence of their pollen at the trapping; c)to know for each taxon: 1)presence and abundance in the area; 2)flowering period (by phenological checking) especially for those families for which it is impossible to differentiate genera and/or species by optical microscope; d)finally,to select the allergen panel for testing in our area.

These results indicate that conditions have not In this case long distance pollen cannot changed during this time span. lead to erroneous conclusions as in the central Sahara. These studies in the deserts clearly emphasise the need for accurate pollen deposition studies in which long distance dispersal can play such an important role in the problems of the reconstruction of former vegetation.
