Abstract:

Field investigations were carried out for four years from April, 2016 to March, 2020 to record the total bee flora and to identify the most important among them in Dhenkanal district of Mid- Central table land zone of Odisha. All plant species recorded under this study were found to provide either nectar or pollen or both to different species of bees. The bee species collected both nectar and pollen from 79 plants, nectar only from 13 plants and pollen only from 3 plants. Out of the total bee flora, 14 were observed to be major and 10 as medium considering plant density per unit area, flowers per plant, duration of blooming and time of attraction of these species to the bees.
