SEASONAL POLLEN ANALYSIS Of NECTAR FROM AND OF EXTRACTED HONEY
R. J. ADAMS AND M. V. SMITH
In 1979 a comparison was made between pollens identified in samples of fresh nectar taken from 3 hives, and in the honey harvested from the same hives. Certain differences indicate the need for wider studies of the pollen analysis of such nectar, in relation to the assessment of the floral origin of honey from its pollen analysis. The data also indicate some pronounced differences in foraging patterns between the colonies.
