Abstract

1. From this study one can conclude that pollen from Erica cinerea, Erica umbellata, and Calluna vulgaris, together with that of Rubus spp. and Echium plantagineum may be considered typical of Galician honeys. 2. The pollen of Castanea vulgaris is characteristic of honeys from the mountainous region of Eastern Galicia. 3. The pollen of Ulex europeus, 1 Brassica oleracea, Trifolium repens and Zea Mays though found in many samples of Galician honeys, cannot be considered typical of Galician honeys. 4. Pollen from fruit trees is likewise not typical of Galician honeys. 5. The infrequent occurrence of the pollen of members of the Labiatae is in marked contrast to the condition as it exists in other Spanish honeys.
