Cultural Heritage and Aerobiology
Methods and Measurement Techniques for Biodeterioration Monitoring
Mandrioli, Paolo; Caneva, Giulia; Sabbioni, Cristina (Eds.) 2004, 258 p., Hardcover, ISBN: 1-4020-1622-0
Aerobiology is interdisciplinary: its application fields range from respiratory diseases to the airborne outbreak of animal and vegetal diseases and to the biodegradation of substances and materials. The latter is the subject of this book. The purpose of aerobiological research applied to the conservation of cultural heritage is to evaluate the risk of alteration by airborne microorganisms of materials forming artefacts of historical, artistic and archaeological interest. Airborne spores and vegetative structures may develop on different substrates and may be a cause of degradation, in relation to the types of materials, the microclimatic situation and the pollution of the conservation environments.
