The Publishing group Elsevier today notified me that my that work published back in 2013 is one of the most highly cited (top 5) within their journal of invertebrate Pathology over the period of publication to June 2016.
-According to Google scholar, the article has been cited 55 times. The article was written in collaboration with undergraduate student Kathryn Yates, plus Ben Darvill from the Bumblebee Conservation Trust and my PhD supervisors Dave Goulson and William O.H. Hughes. It describes how we identified the parasite, Nosema ceranae in wild bumblebees in the UK. We go on to test the effects of this parasite on the common bumblebee Bombus terrestris, and find it to be harmful to the bumblebees survival and an aspect of their physiology known as the Proboscis extension response.
