This collection receives many technical visits aiming pollen identification and contributes with numerous monographs, dissertations, theses and papers. The study of pollen grains, spores and other microscopic palinomorphs, fossils or not, is called palynology. Melissopalinology is the specific study of pollen grains identified on honey samples with the aim of determining plant species visited by bees to produce bee prdocts.
