"Pollen is everywhere ~ Pollen can do everything"

Forensic palynology can also verify or disprove the quality of home or hospital care given to the deceased, and can be used to validate statements regarding the air quality of home, offices or apartments. Pollen and spores can also be used to track the probable location of a suspect at the time of the crime from the composition of the pollen grains in clothes, in hair, in dust in cars and so on. Pollen can also be used to find the source of illegal drugs — or to verify the purity of gourmet honey types claiming to be from one special plant.
