Humic acids in faecal matter, nest material and fungus comb of termites



Humic acids in faecal matter, nest material and fungus comb of termites



Bulletin of Entomology 21(1/2): 122-125



Termites are some of the most important agents in the biodegradation of wood in the field and play a significant part in the recycling of organic matter in the soil, notably humic acids which are contributory factors in soil fertility. As a result of studies in Uttar Pradesh, India, a table is presented showing the amounts of humic acids present in the faecal pellets, nest materials or fungus comb of 7 species of termites, together with their food-plants.
