Diversity of Bees ( Hymenoptera : Apoidea ) as Insect Pollinators on Physic uts ( Euphorbiaceae : Jatropha curcas L . ) in Thailand

  title={Diversity of Bees ( Hymenoptera : Apoidea ) as Insect Pollinators on Physic uts ( Euphorbiaceae : Jatropha curcas L . ) in Thailand},
  author={C. In-son and S. Malaipan},
Insect pollinators are very important for fruit setting of Jatropha curcas L. All insect pollinators were surveyed and identified in 20 provinces of Thailand during from April to August 2009. The results revealed 311 species, 138 genera and 64 families in eight orders namely Hymenoptera, Lepidoptera, Diptera, Coleoptera, Hemiptera, Mantodea, Orthoptera and Blattodea. All insect species were segregated into major and minor groups according to their behavioral activities and importance to J… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Native bee pollinators and pollen sources of Apidae (Hymenoptera) in four forest types of Lower northern Thailand
The dwarf honey bees, Apis florea Fabricius, 1787, are the main pollinator at the study site with the highest number of pollinated plant species (46 species) and could be used as a biological indicator for future studies. Expand


Pollination ecology and fruiting behaviour in a monoecious species, Jatropha curcas L. (Euphorbiaceae).
The fruiting behaviour indicates that the plant might selectively eliminate the growing offspring, e specially geitonogamy fruit to allocate the resources available to the plant, mostly for xenogamous fruit. Expand
Diversity and abundance of bees (Hymenoptera: Apiformes) in native and ruderal grasslands of agriculturally dominated landscapes
The abundance, but not the richness, of small bee species was less than expected at ruderal sites when compared to prairies, implying the presence of local nesting opportunities in ruderal grasslands for small bees but insufficient resources to support large populations. Expand
