SOUZA, D.N. et al. Applied mathematical models in the growth of beehives of apis mellifera l. in cariri paraibano. Arch. zootec. [online]. 2011, vol.60, n.229, pp.137-140. ISSN 0004-0592.

The aim of this work was to evaluate the potentiality of the beekeeping in the Cariri Paraibano, using mathematical models to esteem the growth of the colonies. The data had been taken weekly with the weighing of nests of 20 beehives installed in the Experimental Station (CCA/UFPB) of São João do Cariri. The estimate of the parameters was made by means of nonlinear regressions, for procedure NLIN of Program SAS (Statistical Analysis System), using the modified Gauss-Newton method. For the choice of the best model, the number of interactions, the determination coefficient and the residue distribution graph were used. Among the studied models, better adjustment was achieved with the quadratic logarithmic model.
