Abstract

Analysis of pollen and honeydew clements was performed on 29 honey samples, most of which were collected in 1983, from the province of Manitoba, Canada. Almost all of the honey studied were unifloral with three pollen types, Brassicaceae (mustard family, canola), Melilotus spp. (sweet clover) and Lotus corniculatus (bird's-foor trefoil), predominating. 'Secondary' pollens, are represented by Melilorus spp., Brassicaceae (othen), Trifoliwn hybridum/T. repens (alsike clover/white clover), Fagopyrum esculentum (buckwheat), Lotus corniculatus  comiculatw and Helianthus annuus (sunflower). Honeydew elements were presebt in very small quantities. Several regional characteristics are shown.
