Studies on the physiology of wintering in bee families II. A comparison of surviving bees from the cluster and dying bees from the winter fall



Studies on the physiology of wintering in bee families II. A comparison of surviving bees from the cluster and dying bees from the winter fall



Pszczelnicze Zeszyty Naukowe 27: 23-31



Dead bees collected weekly during winter were compared with samples of live bees taken from the cluster. Differences were significant. Dead bees had lower fresh and dry weights and a lower water content; their hypopharyngeal glands and fat-body were less well developed and they contained more spores of Nosema apis.
