The incidence and world distribution of honey bee viruses
Mark Allen And Brenda Ball
Honey bee viruses are increasingly of interest to both bee researchers and beekeepers, primarily because of their association with the parasitic mite Varroa jacobsoni. The identification of viruses requires specialized techniques, and reviews of honey bee disease distribution that have been published so far do not contain much information on viruses. The authors, leading experts on bee viruses, have collected together data from many sources to produce this important review.
