Corylus (hazel) pollen is considered to be an important aeroallergen and its appearing in the atmosphere indicates the beginning of the aeropollen season in the observed region. The aim of this study was to present and compare the profiles of the hazel pollen season in three cities of the Danube-Kris-Mures-Tisa Euroregion, in order to furnisch a basis for the future forecasting model. Novi Sad (Serbia and Montenegro), Szeged (Hungary) and Timisoara (Romania) are regularly monitoring aeropollen concentrations using Hirst-type pollen and spore traps. This study compared dates of the onset of pollen season, the durations of pollen season and the periods when the pollen concentration reached critical values for the years 2000-2002. It was found that the hazel pollen season started earlier in Novi Sad and Szeged than in Timisoara. The average duration of the hazel pollen season anounted to 61 days in Novi Sad and 49 and 28 days in Szeged and Timisoara, respectively. The maximum pollen concentration was reached in 2002, in all of the three cities. The period when the concentration reached critical values lasted only for a few days and it was a prominent feature of the hazel pollen season.
