Bees are important both for the production of honey and wax and particularly for their role in the pollination of many plants, including some important economic crops. For example bees have been shown to increase yields of sunflower, coffee, avocado, cotton, crops of the pumpkin family, eggplants, mango and paw-paw. This CD-ROM provides information on a total of nearly 100 bee forage plants in the lower Congo and 75 plants in the highlands of Tanzania together with photos of most of them. Forage charts indicate the months when bees collect nectar or pollen from various sources in the two areas thus indicating which plants are particularly important for their well being throughout the year.
