Pollination is one of the key components of global biodiversity and is very important for ecosystems in ensuring the maintenance of ecological processes, which are largely responsible for the successful reproduction of native plants. Apis cerana Fabr. including insect pollinators that are widely cultivated in the conservation forest Tahura Ir H Djuanda. Through survey and observation methods, it is known that some plants in Tahura are visited by honey bees, which have great potential for the effectiveness of plant pollination in Tahura. The types of plants visited by honey bees can be classified into agricultural and non-agricultural crops in a radius of 500 meters from Tahura. Based on the data, it is known that honey bees visited non-agricultural plants as many as 39 families and 83 species, while agricultural crops were 6 families and 17 species. So it can be concluded that bees prefer visiting non-agricultural crops rather than agricultural crops in Tahura, therefore the potential for pollination effectiveness by honey bees will be greater in non-agricultural crops such as plants in Tahura to maintain conservation forest biodiversity.
