Abstract:
Field investigations were carried out for five years from April, 2016 to March, 2021 to record the total bee flora and to identify the most important among them in four blocks viz. Athagarh, Tigiria, Badamba and Narasinghpur block of Cuttack district under 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 85 plants, nectar only from 14 plants and pollen only from 3 plants. Out of the total bee flora, 14 were observed to be major and 13 as medium considering plant density per unit area, flowers per plant, duration of blooming and time of attraction of these species to the bees.
