    Book: Biology of termites. Volume 1. Abstract: This is the first of two volumes in which the widely scattered but important advances in knowledge of termite biology made in the past 20 years are to be brought together and existing data reassessed In it, 15 authors contribute to reviews of anatomical, Cited by: 7. The book also examines caste differentiation in the three lower termite families, namely, Hodotermitidae, Kalotermitidae, and Rhinotermitidae. This volume includes discussions on the rearing, feeding, and biochemistry of termites; the radioisotopes for feeding studies; and the moisture requirements for termite survival.

As such, the book brings into sharp focus the tremendous usefulness of termites as research systems, and the close interplay between vii viii Foreword systematics, evolutionary biology, ecology, and other, more-proximate and mechanistic disciplines.

Subterranean termites are social insects. This means that they live in family groups called colonies.

Social insects are different from other insects (grasshoppers, cockroaches, or beetles) because each termite in the colony performs a specific job that benefits the colony as a whole. Most other insects work only for themselves.

18 to 20 years is one of the links of time that was in my notes right now. When most insects, or a lot of insects are measured their lifespan in days, that seems like a really, really long time.This Volume comprises 12 chapters in an attempt to bring available information on biology, social behavour and economic importance of termites.

Chapters in this book dealing with termites identification provide a review on most updated information of their systematics.
