At present, seven families and 14 subfamilies are recognized. A large majority (ca. 85%) of known genera are included in one family, by: Termites are the master builders of the animal kingdom, with perhaps no equal. On a size to creation ratio, some species of termite can build a structure the equivalent of 10 times the size of the Empire State Building without so much as breaking a sweat.

How they can accomplish such a feat is still somewhat of a mystery considering their size. "This book provides a general scientific introduction to termites, including their biology, behavior, pest status, and control. It is directed to advanced students in entomology and pest management, as well as to professionals."--Entomological News "Termites are among the 3/5(2).

Coptotermes gaurii, is a species of subterranean termite of the genus Coptotermes. It is native to South India and Sri Lanka.

It is a serious pest of tea in Sri : Rhinotermitidae. This is a research-oriented review of the biology of termites. There is a strong emphasis on the gains made from modern technologies and contemporary concepts, for example the molecular and morphological phylogenies, social theory, the culture of fastidious microorganisms, microelectrode probing, natural stable isotope analysis and protein purification.

Termites feed on wood or wood products, and their digestive tracts contain microorganisms which enable them to convert the cellulose in wood into usable food. Most termites need moist condi-tions to become established.

For subterranean termites, the moisture source usually is the soil. For dampwood termites, the moisture comes from wet Size: KB. Isoptera (termites) is a small order of insects containing about described species.

Termites make up the order Isoptera, comprising approximately 2, described species. The number of described species is thought to be no more than one-fourth to one-half the actual number, but this depends in part on the species concept applied.
