  • Neumann, Peter; Retschnig, Gina; Williams, Geoffrey R.; Odemer, Richard; Boltin, Janina; Di Poto, Cornelia; Mehmann, Marion M.; Retschnig, Peter; Winiger, Pius; Rosenkranz, Peter (Wiley, 2015-11)
    Interactions between pesticides and parasites are believed to be responsible for increased mortality of honey bee (Apis mellifera) colonies in the northern hemisphere. Previous efforts have employed experimental approaches ...
  • Dietemann, Vincent; Neumann, Peter; Lin, Zheguang; Page, Paul; Li, Li; Qin, Yao; Zhang, Yingying; Hu, Fuliang; Zheng, Huoqing (Public Library of Science, 2016-09-08)
    The poor health status of the Western honey bee, Apis mellifera, compared to its Eastern counterpart, Apis cerana, is remarkable. This has been attributed to lower pathogen prevalence in A. cerana colonies and to their ...
  • Neumann, Peter; Hancke, Gerhard P.; Rauchhaupt, Lutz (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-10)
    Heterogeneous networks, frequently consisting of (partially homogeneous) local and wide-area systems, as well as wired and wireless communication systems, will become increasingly important. Future scenarios of ...
  • Neumann, Peter; Naef, Jan; Crewe, Robin M.; Pirk, Christian Walter Werner; Crailsheim, Karl (Wiley, 2015-12)
    Some parasites of social insects are able to exploit the exchange of food between nestmates via trophallaxis, because they are chemically disguised as nestmates. However, a few parasites succeed in trophallactic solicitation ...
  • Neumann, Peter; Straub, Lars; Villamar-Bouza, Laura; Bruckner, Selina; Chantawannakul, Panuwan; Gauthier, Laurent; Khongphinitbunjong, Kitiphong; Retschnig, Gina; Troxler, Aline; Vidondo, Beatriz; Williams, Geoffrey R. (The Royal Society, 2016-05-06)
    There is clear evidence for sublethal effects of neonicotinoid insecticides on non-target ecosystem service-providing insects. However, their possible impact on male insect reproduction is currently unknown, despite the ...
  • Neumann, Peter; Gauthier, Laurent; Williams, Geoffrey R.; Troxler, Aline; Retsching, Gina; Roth, Kaspar; Yanez, Orlando; Shutler, Dave (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-10-13)
    Queen health is crucial to colony survival of social bees. Recently, queen failure has been proposed to be a major driver of managed honey bee colony losses, yet few data exist concerning effects of environmental stressors ...
  • Neumann, Peter; Dietemann, Vincent; Eyer, Michael; Greco, Mark K.; Lang, Johann (Springer, 2016-02)
    Honey bees, Apis, forage for nectar and pollen, which are subsequently stored in cells of their nests. Despite the importance of honey storage for colony survival, very little is known about decision making by honey bee ...
  • Neumann, Peter; Pettis, Jeff S.; Schazfer, Mark O. (SpringerOpen Journal, 2016-05)
    Small hive beetles (SHBs) are generalists native to sub-Saharan Africa and reproduce in association with honeybees, bumblebees, stingless bees, fruits and meat. The SHB has recently become an invasive species, and introductions ...
  • Crewe, Robin M.; Pirk, Christian Walter Werner; Sole, Catherine L.; Neumann, Peter; Moritz, Robin F.A.; Lattorff, H. Michael G.; Radloff, Sarah E.; Hepburn, H. Randall (Oxford University Press, 2012-07)
    A critique of “Asexually Produced Cape Honeybee Queens (Apis mellifera capensis) Reproduce Sexually”: Laying workers of the Cape honeybee parthenogenetically produce female offspring whereas queens typically produce males. ...
  • Neumann, Peter; Dietemann, Vincent; Yanez, Orlando; Zheng, Huo-Qing; Hu, Fu-Liang (Springer, 2012-09)
    The Israeli acute paralysis virus (IAPV, Maori et al., 2007; de Miranda et al., 2010) is widespread in Western honey bees (Apis mellifera) for whom it can be a marker of colony losses (Cox-Foster et al., 2007). It has ...
  • Moritz, Robin F.A.; Pirk, Christian Walter Werner; Neumann, Peter; Hepburn, H. Randall (Springer, 2008)
    The short-sighted selection hypothesis for parasite virulence predicts that winners of within-host competition are poorer at transmission to new hosts. Social parasitism by self-replicating, female-producing workers occurs ...
  • Neumann, Peter; Dietemann, Vincent; Page, Paul; Lin, Zheguang; Buawangpong, Ninat; Zheng, Huoqing; Hu, Fuliang; Chantawannakul, Panuwan (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-06-06)
    Eusocial insect colonies form superorganisms, in which nestmates cooperate and use social immunity to combat parasites. However, social immunity may fail in case of emerging diseases. This is the case for the ectoparasitic ...
  • Dietemann, Vincent; Gauthier, Laurent; Neumann, Peter; Pflugfelder, Jochen; Anderson, Denis; Charriere, Jean-Daniel; Chejanovsky, Nor; Dainat, Benjamin; De Miranda, Joachim R.; Delaplane, Keith; Dillier, Franz-Xaver; Fuch, Stefan; Gallmann, Peter; Imdorf, Anton; Koeniger, Nikolaus; Kralj, Jasna; Meikle, William; Pettis, Jeff; Rosenkranz, Peter; Sammataro, Diana; Smith, Deborah; Yanez, Orlando (International Bee Research Association, 2012)
    Pollination by honey bees plays a key role in the functioning of ecosystems and optimisation of agricultural yields. Severe honey bee colony losses worldwide have raised concerns about the sustainability of these pollination ...
