Abstract

The three species of honey bees viz., Indian bee Apis ceratm indica F. little bee, Apis florea
F. and dammer bee, Melipona iridipennis D. were observed in different proportions in the
inflorescence of 47 coconut genotypes comprising 28 varieties and 19 hybrids. The number of
Indian bees visiting was 2.5 times more than the dammer bee. The number of honey bees visiting
the hybrids was 36 percent more than the varieties.
