Pollen data from the manuscript titled: Identity and diversity of pollens collected by two managed bee species while in blueberry fields for pollination, published in Environmental Entomology. Pollen was collected from honey bee (Apis mellifera) and bumble bee (Bombus impatiens) forager returning to the colony, while in commercial highbush blueberry fields in SW Michigan for crop pollination. Pollen was identified visually using morphological features.
