Cross-infectivity of honey and bumble bee-associated parasites across three bee families

Parasitology, 147(12), 1290–1304.

By: L. Ngor*, E. Palmer-Young*, R. Burciaga Nevarez*, K. Russell*, L. Leger*, S. Giacomini n, M. Pinilla-Gallego n, R. Irwin n, Q. McFrederick*

author keywords: Alfalfa leafcutter bee; blue orchard bee; flagellate; Halictus ligatus; host-parasite specificity; Kinetoplastidae; Leishmaniiniae; Megachile rotundata; Osmia lignaria; sweat bee
MeSH headings : Animals; Bees / parasitology; Crithidia / isolation & purification; Crithidia / pathogenicity; Honey / parasitology; Host Specificity; Host-Parasite Interactions; Microsporidiosis / veterinary; Nosema / isolation & purification; Nosema / pathogenicity; Pathology, Molecular; Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction / methods; Trypanosomatina / isolation & purification; Trypanosomatina / pathogenicity
TL;DR: Findings suggest a broad host range in these trypanosomatids, and underscore the need to quantify disease-mediated threats of managed social bees to sympatric pollinators. (via Semantic Scholar)

Venus Flytrap Rarely Traps Its Pollinators

The American Naturalist, 191(4), 539–546.

By: E. Youngsteadt n, R. Irwin n, A. Fowler n, M. Bertone n, S. Giacomini n, M. Kunz, D. Suiter*, C. Sorenson n

author keywords: Venus flytrap; Dionaea muscipula; pollination ecology; pollinator-prey conflict; niche overlap
MeSH headings : Animals; Arachnida / physiology; Droseraceae / physiology; Insecta / physiology; Pollination
TL;DR: Analysis of the Venus flytrap finds that certain bee and beetle species appear to be the most important pollinators, on the basis of their abundance, pollen load size, and pollen fidelity, within this diverse, generalized community. (via Semantic Scholar)

Context-dependent medicinal effects of anabasine and infection-dependent toxicity in bumble bees

PLOS ONE, 12(8), e0183729.

By: E. Palmer-Young*, A. Hogeboom*, A. Kaye*, D. Donnelly*, J. Andicoechea*, S. Connon n, I. Weston*, K. Skyrm*, R. Irwin n, L. Adler*

Ed(s): J. Hull

MeSH headings : Anabasine / toxicity; Animals; Bees / drug effects; Bees / parasitology; Host-Parasite Interactions / drug effects; Infections / drug therapy
TL;DR: Variation in the effect of anabasine on infection suggests potential modulation of tritrophic interactions by both host genotype and environmental variables, and suggests that the medicinal effects and toxicity of an abasine may be context dependent. (via Semantic Scholar)
