Securing long-term floral resources for the honeybee industry
Program Honey Bee
Research organisation The University of Adelaide
Objective summary The broad aims of this project are to better document the use and importance of native plants (particularly woodland eucalypts) in different landscapes (natural bushland paddock and revegetation) to commercial beekeepers identifying deficiencies in theresource base where they exist. This information will then be used to assist in maintaining the health and productivity of current trees from a beekeeper perspective while growing the floral resource base through appropriate revegetation and restorationprograms.
