Abstract This study was aimed at characterizing the effects of the activity of termites of the genus Nasutitermes on the physico‐chemical properties of the acid sandy soils of southern Nigeria. Selected morphological properties of the termite mounds were measured in the field. Outside portions of the termite mound and surface (0–15 cm) soil were collected and analyzed for some physical and chemical properties. Results obtained showed a density of 112 mounds ha‐1 with average height of 0.85 m… CONTINUE READING
