Description

Honey and Pollen Flora of South-Eastern Australia is written by Dr Doug Somerville and published by the NSW Department of Primary Industries. This is a MUST have book for any Beekeeper. This is because understanding the biology of flora and its value to honey bees is core knowledge for successful beekeeping. Bees feed on nectar and pollen. Beekeepers need to know the floral resources around them and the nutritional value of those resources to bees. This will keep their bee colonies healthy. This publication focuses on the value of plants to nectarivores, and honey bees in particular. The result of over 30 years of research, it distils both scientific knowledge and the opinions of hundreds of beekeepers into a reference work. It will be the cornerstone of floral understanding in apiculture for years to come.
