The NDB syllabus, revised July 2009
The NDB plant list, revised January 2021
Plants are typically selected from this list for the NDB Practical Examination. However, this list is provided as a guide only; any plant useful or significant to bees could be included. It should be noted that the botany section of the NDB exam is not concerned exclusively with plant identification; aspects of pollen morphology, nectar presentation, preferred habitat and particular special features may also feature.
