Abstract - This bibliography of the published literature on Apis cerana was compiled from 2687 references written by 2002 authors and were published in 449 periodicals, conference proceedings, theses, reports and books covering the period 1793-2004. The literature shows greater strength in the applied aspects of beekeeping than basic honeybee biology. Growth of this literature has doubled each decade for the last half century.
