Introduction and Spread of Honeybees in Mainland Papua New Guinea

Two articles by C.D. Michener (11a, 11b) on Apis mellifera in Papua New Guinea were published in 1963. This paper complements them and includes further information on the introduction and spread of honeybees in mainland PNG and describes initial developments in commercial beekeeping. The details were mainly obtained by personal communication with beekeepers and others and by personal observations.
