Italicize species names in reference list

I am using bookdown to generate a pdf book, and use a .bib file generated with mendeley. I use the natbib package with \setcitestyle{numbers,square} style. I call the references with [@reference].

I have quite a few references with species names in the title, something like this:

Incidence of mutator strains in Escherichia coli and coliforms in nature. Mutation Research Letters, 91(2):107–110, mar 1981

Where Escherichia coli is the species name. By default, it is not italicized. Initially, I tried to add <i>Escherichia coli</i> inside the reference title, but this does not seem to work when used in bookdown. Is there any way to make sure that these names are italicized in the reference list?
