Ecology of termites in the savanna



Ecology of termites in the savanna



Transactions Japanese Geomorphological Union 12(3): 189-202



The biology of termites is reviewed with special reference to the ecological role of these Isoptera in savanna ecosystems. Termites are the dominant animals in tropical savannas, as well as in tropical forests, their biomass sometimes exceeding 10 g ww/msuperscript 2. In the savanna of Nigeria, termites consume 36% of annual plant litter.
