    Noah Wilson-Rich
    Department of Biology, Tufts University, Medford, MA 02155, United States
    J Insect Physiol 58:402-7. 2012
    ..These results suggest that high genetic diversity as a result of extreme polyandry may have little bearing on the physiological mechanisms of immune function at naturally occurring mating levels in honey bees...
