Yeasts associated with pollinating bees and flower nectar


A study of the yeast flora of 328 honey stomachs from 7 different pollinating bee species, and 342 flower nectar samples of 9 different flower species yielded 766 yeast isolates composed of 16 genera and 47 species. Most of the yeast species from both the sources belonged to the genusCandida, while the most frequently isolated yeasts wereDekkera intermedia… (More)
