Pollen of Iowa Honey

Document Type

Research

Abstract

Pollen that is preserved in honey reveals the identity of the plants which bees visit in gathering nectar and to some extent the place of origin and season in which it is collected. In 1944 a study of pollen in Iowa honey was made by the author and the present paper describes some of the pollen types encountered in that study. A few of the common types with descriptions are here presented and the sizes given are those of the pollen grains which had been in honey and treated according to the method outlined in the earlier paper.
