The revision of honey plants in the regions’ floras and nature objects is regularly made for estimation of melliferous capacity of the territory. The article is devoted to the investigation of the melliferous flora of Northern and North-Western Altai in the area of Altai Territory. The goal of the research was to reveal the botanical composition of authentic honeys. The representativeness of melliferous species among common floristic richness in the studied districts is the following: in Altaiskiy − 56.49 %, Smolenskiy − 60.17 %, Soloneshenskiy − 53.61 %, Charyshskiy − 44.57 %. The examples of the botanical content of samples typical for each of these districts have been shown. In the angelica (djagilevyj) honey from Altajskiy district the maximum content of pollen belongs to the representatives from Apiaceae family 78.86 %. For the angelica (djagilevyj) honeys from surveyed districts the high content of pollen from the families Asteracerae, Brassicaceae, Fabaceae, Rosaceae are typical with different percentage in the samples. The article provides information on examples of wild-growing plant species including relicts, potential melliferous which pollen can be used as “marker” for determination of honey as Altai-origin.
