Differential use of timbers by termites in the cerrado

Differential use of timbers by termites in the cerrado

Brasil Florestal 15(66): 26-31

In studies in Minas Gerais, the wood of 3 cerrado species (Qualea grandiflora, Salvertia convallariodora and Terminalia argentea) and one exotic (Eucalyptus citriodora) were tested for resistance to termites. Fragments of wood (including bark) were partially buried in cerrado areas for up to 34 months. S. convalliodora and Q. grandiflora showed greatest resistance to attack. E. citriodora was the most susceptible.
