Intraspecific aggression, colony identity and foraging distances in Sudanese Microtermes spp. (Isoptera: Termitidae: Macrotermitinae)






Ecological Entomology, 151: 71-77

Intraspecific aggression, colony identity and foraging distances in Sudanese Microtermes spp. (Isoptera: Termitidae: Macrotermitinae)

Intraspecific aggression between major workers was used to obtain estimates of foraging distances for Microtermes lepidus, M. najdensis and a species of this genus near M. albopartitus, using insects collected from the field in Sudan.
