Toxicity of essential oils of Lippia gracilis chemotypes and their major compounds on Diaphania hyalinata and non-target species
Mutual Use of Trail-Following Chemical Cues by a Termite Host and Its Inquiline
It is determined that the trail-following pheromone of C. cyphergaster is made of neocembrene and (3Z,6Z,8E)-dodeca-3,6,8-trien-1-ol, and that I. microcerus shows the converse behaviour.

The results indicated that the invasion of C. cyphergaster nests by obligatory termitophiles and inquilines was dependent on nest size, and there appeared to be a critical nest size above which nests were more prone to invasion.
Diet Segregation between Cohabiting Builder and Inquiline Termite Species
Results indicate the possibility that dietary partitioning by these cohabiting termites was not majorly driven by current interactive constraints, rather, it seems to be a result of traits previously fixed in the evolutionary past of cohabitants.

It is revealed that root attack by nematodes can shape leaf physiology, and thereby increases plant resistance, and is accompanied by a strong suppression of leaf volatile emissions, a decrease in photosynthetic rates, and an increase in the activity of leaf trypsin protease inhibitors.
Resource availability influences aggression and response to chemical cues in the Neotropical termite Nasutitermes aff. coxipoensis (Termitidae: Nasutitermitinae)

The results suggest that resource availability affects acceptance of chemical cues, path choice and aggression in N. coxipoensis, increasing the understanding of mechanisms of co-occurrence and coexistence of termite species, as well as patterns oftermite species richness in distinct biomes.
