Nectar is a significant resource for native fauna and European honeybees Apis mellifera in the Australian environment, but its production has not been quantified in tall forest canopies over multiple sites. The focus of this research is on nectar production by spotted gum Corymbia maculata and grey ironbark Eucalyptus paniculata, both tree species of prime importance to the timber industry, beekeepers and nectarivorous wildlife.
