This illustrated guide gives a comprehensive overview of termites. Despite the damage caused to houses, crops and forest plantations, their ecological role should not be overlooked. Moreover, over the past few years, they have been spreading and some species have become endemic to temperate regions. After an introduction to the life, development and functions of termites within ecosystems, the book includes descriptive sheets for six families and 37 genera, illustrated with a map of their distribution. Readers can thus easily identify the main species from among the 2500 known species.
The guide is easy to use and practical, and is intended for anyone interested in termites, both amateurs and professionals, on North and South.
