Pollen Analysis of Chestnut Honey in Some Provinces of the Black Sea Region,Turkey

Perihan ERKAN ALKAN [1]


This study presents the pollen analysis of 16 chestnut honeys from the Black Sea Region of Turkey. Honey samples were collected from 12 different localities in 2018 around Samsun, Sinop, Kastamonu and Giresun. Honey samples were taken from a height of at least 10 and a height of 859 meters. The pollen analysis was carried out using microscopical analysis. All of the samples collected are unifloral honey.The highest number of pollen was observed in the samples from Bozkurt, Kastamonu in Turkey. Özet Bu çalışma, Türkiye'nin Karadeniz Bölgesi'nde bulunan farklı şehirlerden 16 kestane balının polen analizini içermektedir. 2018 yılında Samsun, Sinop, Kastamonu ve Giresun çevresinde 12 farklı bölgeden bal örnekleri toplanmıştır. Bal örnekleri deniz seviyesinden en az 10 metre, en fazla 859 metre yükseklikten alınmıştır. Balların mikroskobik analizi Toplam Polen Sayısı (TPS) kullanılarak gerçekleştirildi. Toplanan örneklerin tamamı unifloral baldır. Çalışmada en fazla polen Bozkurt, Kastamonu'dan alınan örneklerde görülmüştür.
