A Comparison of Wolbachia Infection Frequencies in Varroa With Prevalence of Deformed Wing Virus.

Abstract

Wolbachia are widely distributed bacterial endosymbionts of arthropods and filarial nematodes. These bacteria can affect host fitness in a variety of ways, such as protecting hosts against viruses and other pathogens. Here, we investigate the possible role of Wolbachia in the prevalence of the deformed wing virus (DWV), a highly virulent pathogen of honey… (More)
