molecular identification of amazonian stingless bees using polymerase chain reaction single-strand conformation countries containing a mega diversity of wildlife, such as brazil, identifying and characterizing biological diversity is a continuous process for the scientific community, even in face of technological and scientific advances. this activity demands initiatives for the taxonomic identification of highly diverse groups, such as stingless bees, including molecular analysis strategies. this type of bee is distributed in all of the brazilian states, with the highest species diversity being found ...201425117306
phenolic profile, antioxidant activity and palynological analysis of stingless bee honey from amazonas, northern this study honey samples produced by melipona (michmelia) seminigra merrillae, collected in seven counties distributed in the central and southern region of amazonas state in brazil, were analysed for their botanical origin, content and profile of phenolic compounds, and antioxidant and antimicrobial activities. twenty-two pollen types were identified. the total phenolic content ranged from 17 to 66 mg gae/g of extract; the highest contents were found in honeys produced from pollen types such ...201323993520
engaging indigenous and academic knowledge on bees in the amazon: implications for environmental management and transdisciplinary research.this paper contributes to the development of theoretical and methodological approaches that aim to engage indigenous, technical and academic knowledge for environmental management. we present an exploratory analysis of a transdisciplinary project carried out to identify and contrast indigenous and academic perspectives on the relationship between the africanized honey bee and stingless bee species in the brazilian amazon. the project was developed by practitioners and researchers of the institut ...201627324644
