Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ...The diversity of conditions in this region is well shown in the accompanying map (Fig. 95), which was prepared by E. G. Baldwin, De Land, Florida, who has studied the beekeeping possibilities of his State quite thoroughly. It will be seen that the sources of nectar are quite distinct geographically. The geographical position of this State and the diversity of soil and climatic conditions strongly influence the growth of the honey plants. In this State two localities only a few miles apart may be quite unlike, when viewed from the standpoint of the beekeeper. This is also true in many other parts of the United States. (4) The semi-arid region of the south-west is located chiefly in the arid and semi-arid parts of Texas and Arizona and here too the honey plants are of somewhat restricted distribution. Among the plants which are important to the beekeeper are mesquite, horsemint, catclaw, huisache and guajilla. Most of the honey produced in this region is extracted, although a large number of beekeepers produce bulk combhoney (chunk honey), cut from large combs (without sections) and placed in cans in which extracted-honey has been poured to fill the spaces. Such honey is usually sold locally. Beekeeping in this region is largely in the hands of professional beekeepers. (5) The sage region is confined to the canons of southern California and should be considered a restricted region except for the fact that sage honey wields so important an influence on the honey market that the region may justly be placed among those of major importance.
