The Biology of and Current Research in Termites (Isoptera)
[ send me this essay ]
A 13 page paper discussing termites from ecological and research perspectives. Ubiquitous creatures, termites are found literally all over the world except in its coldest regions—Alaska is the only state of the Union without some form of known termite activity. There had been surprisingly little research done until only the last several years, but the path of that research has differed from that of other disciplines in that nearly all of it has pointed and specific purpose, and not all of that in control measures. Only about 10 percent of the world's more than 2,700 species are destructive. One that is causing the 'Second Battle of New Orleans,' the Formosan termite, is attracting the attention even of the US Congress. Much current research is centered on alternative uses for termites, such as decomposers in municipal landfills and as supplementary livestock feed. Bibliography lists 21 sources.
