Interactions between biotic stress agents and the collapse of honeybee colonies The collapse of honeybee colonies represents a poorly understood problem of global importance. Here we describe how the parasitic mite Varroa destructor can destabilize the delicate balance between the deformed wing virus and the immune system of the honyebee, causing a fatal transition from a benign covert infection to a devastating viral outbreak.

Abstract

Interactions between biotic stress agents and the collapse of honeybee colonies The collapse of honeybee colonies represents a poorly understood problem of global importance. Here we describe how the parasitic mite Varroa destructor can destabilize the delicate balance between the deformed wing virus and the immune system of the honyebee, causing a fatal transition from a benign covert infection to a devastating viral outbreak.
