Abstract

A melissopalynological analysis was conducted on 50 samples of honey collected during different seasons in four different phytogeography regions in extreme of North-East Algeria. 64 botanical families were identified in samples inventoried the studied honeys that are contained 203 pollen types. 15 samples belong to Class V, which explains their high pollen, 5 samples of Class IV, and 15 samples correspond to Class III, Class II have 12 samples, and finally 3 samples are in Class I. pollen spectrum varies significantly between honeys coastal region compared to the honeys of the internal region including an average of 17.38 pollen types per sample. 17 mono-flower honeys were typified, Eucalyptus sp pollen grains were found with an important number in seven samples, five honeys were dominated with Eucalyptus camaldulensis L. pollen grain, The Hedysarum type dominate two honeys, and both of three honeys were dominate respectively with Myrtus communis L., Echium plantagineum L. and Melilotus officinalis L. The majority of honeys are polyfloral characterized by the absence of dominant pollen. Finally, qualitative pollen analysis has established a list of regularly visited plants by bees.
