Ecological and evolutionary approaches to managing honey bee disease.

, 2017. 1, 1250–1262
This review lays out why we need to incorporate ecological and evolutionary considerations into the management of honey bee disease, including developing the idea that current management techniques may actually be selecting for more-virulent parasites and pathogens.

Fine scale population genetic structure of Varroa destructor, an ectoparasitic mite of the honey bee (Apis mellifera)
, 2017. 48(1): 93-101
This is the first work to use population genetic approaches to understand patterns of gene flow and potentially transmission in Varroa mites, the single largest cause of honey bee colony loss worldwide.
