Nosema ceranae is a newly discovered pathogen of the European honeybee which has been found in the USA, Asia and most of Europe. N. ceranae has been reported to cause significant losses of bees in Europe and has also been associated with colony collapse disorder (CCD) a severe condition which has resulted in the loss of thousands of hives in the USA.

The aims of this project are to determine whether N. ceranae infects bees and contaminates honey in Australia.
