Abstract

The pollen morphology of 51 species representing under 28 botanical families have been observed as potential source of pollen and identified from bee honey sample using light microscope. Major pollen yielding plants were found mostly under the family Compositae, Myrtaceae, Malvaceae, Euphorbiaceae, Cucurbitaceae, Leguminosae, Rubiaceae, Lythraceae, Combretaceae and Fabaceae were identified. Although some forage plants are occured throughout the year in the locality but March to June is the major flowering period whereas July to October are minor flow period of pollen while November to February is the least productive period of pollen. Two sites have been studied due to highly difference of environment and geographical area hoping to obtained varieties of species available in the sites. This paper gives the general idea of range of plants species that occur in the area and describe a simplified method for determining the total amount of pollen grains in honey.
