Danin and Baruch on the flowers on the Holy Shroud

A book by Barberis and Boccaletti, first published in 2010, makes mention, in a chapter on the pollen, of the study by Avinoam Danin and Uri Baruch: three plants, Gundelia tournefortii, Cistus Creticus and Zygophyllum domosum, found together only in Palestine, between Jerusalem and Hebron. Danin, in a conference on the Shroud in Turin in 2000, went on to say that Gundelia was found in good quantity also on the Sudario of Oviedo, the blood stained cloth that is said to have been placed on the face of Jesus, and that the bloodstains belong to the same blood group, AB. (pp. 170-72)

See cap. 20: La via dei pollini conduce in Palestina. Bruno Barberis and Massimo Boccaletti, Il "Caso Sindone" non è chiuso (Milano: San Paolo, 2010, 2015)
