AbstractFor this work, we considered the results of four studies that sampled bees on flowers in the two main biomes of São Paulo State: Atlantic forest (3 locations) and 'cerrado' (4 locations). We found 276 species of bees belonging to 88 genera: 207 species and 78 genera in the Atlantic forest and 105 genera and 40 species in the 'cerrado' biome. Apidae family was the most represented in both biomes. In the sampled areas, bees visited 433 plant species: 361 in the Atlantic forest and 75 in the 'cerrado'.
