Abstract

Nosemosis is a worldwide spread parasitic disease caused by species of the genus Nosema. Until recently, they where classified in a group of protozoa, but latest taxonomic studies have revealed that they are closer to the realm of fungi. Nosemosis is caused by two species: Nosema apis and Nosema ceranae. They are parasites on the epithelial cells of the small intestine, and are distribuited by specific spores. Nosema apis was first discovered in 1907. but the disease itself was observed even sooner (Broz, 1904.). Continuous research carried out on the bees in recent years revealed Nosema ceranae moved from its Asian carrier, Asian honeybee, to the European honeybee and spread throught the world. Due to the presented facts it can be said that Nosema ceranae is actually an invasive species. Future research of Nosemosis is important to implement because with high probability we can say that it is one of the main reasons of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD).
