Ecological factors associated with the evolution of worker and soldier castes in termites



Ecological factors associated with the evolution of worker and soldier castes in termites



Annals of Entomology 1993; 9(2): 101-107



This brief review includes information on over 30 genera of Isoptera, and discussions on life types in termites, evolution from false worker to true worker caste, and ecological factors associated with the presence of the soldier caste.
