About this book

Research-oriented review of the biology of termites with a strong emphasis on the gains made from modern technologies and contemporary concepts. Evolutionary, behavioural and developmental relationships with cockroaches and other social insects are considered in detail, while the highly complex and perhaps unconventional mutualisms between termites and Archaea, bacteria, protists and fungi are also addressed.
