Intraspecific colony recognition in the termites Macrotermes subhyalinus and M. bellicosus was investigated over two field seasons in Comoë-Nationalpark (Ivory Coast). Behavioural tests with major workers and minor soldiers, respectively, were performed using neutral arenas of covered plastic dishes. For each species, termites were sampled by baiting from 10 field colonies randomly chosen at four different sites. Major workers and minor soldiers of both species were capable of differentially… CONTINUE READING
