    • Expression analysis of genes putatively associated with hygienic behavior in selected stocks of Apis mellifera L. from Argentina 

      Scannapieco, Alejandra Carla; Mannino, Constanza; Soto, Gabriela Cinthia; Palacio, Marí­a Alejandra; Cladera, Jorge Luis; Lanzavecchia, Silvia Beatriz (2017-11)
      Hygienic behavior is an economically beneficial, heritable trait, which has evolved to limit the impact of honeybee pathogens. Selecting and breeding colonies with high levels of hygienic behavior has become a feasible and ...
    • Genetic variation and heteroplasmy of Varroa destructor inferred from ND4 mtDNA sequences 

      Muntaabski, Irina; Russo, Romina Maria; Liendo, María Clara; Palacio, María Alejandra; Cladera, Jorge Luis; Lanzavecchia, Silvia Beatriz; Scannapieco, Alejandra Carla (Springer, 2020-02)
      Varroa destructor, a parasitic mite of the western honey bee, Apis mellifera L., is a serious threat to colonies and beekeeping worldwide. Population genetics studies of the mite have provided information on two mitochondrial ...
    • Grooming Behavior in Naturally Varroa-Resistant Apis mellifera Colonies From North-Central Argentina 

      Russo, Romina Maria; Liendo, María Clara; Landi, Lucas; Pietronave, Hernan Pablo; Merke, Julieta; Fain, Hernan Carlos; Muntaabski, Irina; Palacio, María Alejandra; Rodriguez, Graciela Adriana; Lanzavecchia, Silvia Beatriz; Scannapieco, Alejandra Carla (Frontiers Media, 2020-10-22)
      The Western honey bee, Apis mellifera, is an important species in providing honey and pollination services globally. The mite Varroa destructor is the major threat to A. mellifera, and it is associated with the severe ...
    • El grooming: enemigo de la varroa 

      Russo, Romina Maria; Liendo, María Clara; Landi, Lucas; Pietronave, Hernan Pablo; Merke, Julieta; Muntaabski, Irina; Palacio, María Alejandra; Rodriguez, Graciela Adriana; Lanzavecchia, Silvia Beatriz; Scannapieco, Alejandra Carla (Sociedad Argentina de Apicultores, 2021-07)
      Una de las enfermedades que mayores pérdidas ocasiona a la industria apícola es la Varroosis, causada por el ácaro Varroa destructor. La selección de colonias por el comportamiento de grooming puede ser una respuesta a ...
    • Individual precocity, temporal persistence, and task-specialization of hygienic bees from selected colonies of apis mellifera 

      Scannapieco, Alejandra Carla; Lanzavecchia, Silvia Beatriz; Parreño, María Alejandra; Liendo, María Clara; Cladera, Jorge Luis; Spivak, Marla; Palacio, Marí­a Alejandra (2016)
      Hygienic behaviour is a complex trait that gives Apis mellifera L. resistance against brood diseases. Variability in the expression of hygienic behaviour is evidenced at the colonylevel and is explained by the proportion ...
    • Temporal changes in volatile profiles of Varroa destructor-infested brood may trigger hygienic behavior in Apis mellifera 

      Liendo, María Clara; Muntaabski, Irina; Russo, Romina Maria; Lanzavecchia, Silvia Beatriz; Segura, Diego Fernando; Palacio, María Alejandra; Cladera, Jorge Luis; Fernández, Patricia Carina; Scannapieco, Alejandra Carla (Wiley, 2021-03-16)
      Varroa destructor Anderson & Trueman (Acari: Varroidae) is one of the major contributors to the significant losses of western honey bee, Apis mellifera L. (Hymenoptera: Apidae), colonies worldwide. Hygienic behavior, in ...
