Resumen

SANTIAGO, Leandro Rodrigues et al. The bee fauna from Parque Municipal da Cachoeirinha (Iporá, Goiás state, Brazil). Biota Neotrop. [online]. 2009, vol.9, n.3, pp.393-397. ISSN 1806-129X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1676-06032009000300034.

Bees are dependent on flower nectar and pollen (main sources of protein and energy, respectively) and have an important economic and ecological role as pollinators, representing about 40 to 90% of phanerogams pollinators in several ecosystems. This work presents a description of bee species from Parque Municipal da Cachoeirinha in Iporá, Goiás state, Brazil. A total of 58 hours of capturing were performed on November and December 2004 and on March and May 2005. A total of 933 individuals were collected, distributed in one family, 16 tribes, 33 genera, and 62 species. Meliponini tribe presented the highest number of individuals and species. Most abundant species were Trigona chanchamayoensis (16.51%), Tetragona clavipes (14.79%) and Apis mellifera and Trigona recursa (12.33%). This work presents the first occurrence in Goiás state for six genera and 12 species.
