It is with admiration and fondness that we dedicate this special issue of ZooKeys to Professor Kumar Krishna, dean of Isoptera research. This collection of papers is a humble testament of appreciation by the various biologists who are dedicated to studying termites, insects that are popularly maligned but actually of profound behavioral and ecological importance. Kumar’s influence extends beyond the scope of isopterological studies and so several of the papers included herein are from… Expand
