This study deals with plant-bee relationships in 3 areas of Morocco: the cork oak forest of Mamora, the large cultivated plain of Gharb and a mixed zone in the Loukkos basin. Pollen analysis of the contents of pollen traps and of honey samples showed that the nectariferous flora is exploited mainly between the end of the humid season (March-April) and the start of the dry season (July-August), when nearly 90% of taxa are visited.
