    School of Biological Sciences, Queen s University Belfast, 97 Lisburn Road, Belfast BT9 7BL, UK
    J Invertebr Pathol 96:1-10. 2007
    ..The rapid, long-distance dispersal of N. ceranae is likely due to transport of infected honey bees by commercial or hobbyist beekeepers. We discuss the implications of this emergent pathogen for worldwide beekeeping...
