KERR, Warwick Estevam; ABSY, Maria Lúcia  and  SOUZA, Antônio Carlos Marques. Espécies nectaríferas e poliníferas utilizadas pela abelha Melipona compressipes fasciculata (MELIPONINAE, APIDAE), no Maranhão. Acta Amaz. [online]. 1986, vol.16, pp.145-156. ISSN 0044-5967.

This paper lists 79 species of plants used by Melipona compressipes fasciculata, the most common bee of Maranhão (a northern Brazilian State). Most of these plants are also visited by Apis Mellifera. Certain plant species are suggested for planting along roadsides, streets, avenues and town parks to increase the bee-exploited flora.
