Feeding preference of subterranean termites for forest species associated or not a wood-decaying fungi



Feeding preference of subterranean termites for forest species associated or not a wood-decaying fungi



Floresta e Ambiente 10(2): 58-63



This study was performed with the aim of determining the "natural" wood preferences of subterranean termites (Isoptera) in a field feeding experiment, giving a choice between a control (Pinus sp.) and test woods: three species of Eucalyptus.
