The development of a floral database for Tasmania is an important contribution to the sustainable development of the honeybee industry in Tasmania.

This RIRDC report provides an overview of the Tasmanian apiary industry, with particular consideration of the potential development of a tea tree honey component. It is accompanied by a field guide to the native flora of Tasmania accessed by honeybees, Apis mellifera. The report and field guide will provide useful information to beekeepers and their peak bodies, governments, consultants and researchers.
