Abstract

With the purpose of identifying the most important honey plants of the Paraná River Delta, field observations were made in order to assess honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) activity. The Asteraceae family is the best represented in number of species and the most visited by bees. The Leguminosae family was placed second. Species with massive blooms were used whenever they were present. Many species were used by bees only during a short period in the blooming season in spite of being available. The floral resource, estimated as the number of flowering species by week was hich at the beginning of spring and at the end of summer, showing a decrease at the beginning of the summer season. The species used with greater intensity during all their blooming period are considered to be a good resource.
