Abstract

There have been very few studies on hygienic behaviour as a mechanism of resistance to American foulbrood since Park, Woodrow, Rothenbuhler, and Rothenbuhler's students published their seminal work. The studies outlined in this part of the review form the core of information from which all later studies on hygienic behaviour have been based.
