Abstract - This bibliography of the literature on Apis florea Fabricius was compiled from 791 references, written by 774 authors and published in 212 different periodicals, conference proceedings, theses, reports, books and patents covering the period 1787-2004. The literature shows greater strength in the applied aspects of beekeeping than in basic biology. Growth of the literature on A. florea has been exponential over the past five decades.
