  A comparative study of morpho-anatomical characters/features in a range of closely related species should be made to evaluate their importance in identification. This would include the study of each character's stability/variability within that group.

Antoni van Leeuwenhoek—commonly known as the founder of microbiology—was one of the first to ask whether the air could be a habitat for micro-organisms (Gregory ), observing that ‘there may be living creatures in the air, which are so small as to escape our sight’ (van Leeuwenhoek ).

Bioaerosol sampling and identification are vital for the assessment and control of airborne pathogens, allergens, and toxins. In-situ analysis of chemical and biological particulate matter can significantly reduce the costs associated with sample preservation, transport, and analysis.
