Treatise on the Isoptera of the World

  title={Treatise on the Isoptera of the World},
  author={Kumar. Krishna and David A. Grimaldi and Valerie Krishna and Michael S. Engel},
ABSTRACT A comprehensive compendium on the taxonomy and biology of the 3106 living and fossil species of the worlds termites is presented, along with reviews of Isoptera morphology and evolution, identification keys, the history of termite systematics, and summary of the worlds 363 significant pest species. A complete bibliography is provided of nearly 5000 references covering virtually all aspects of termite taxonomy and biology through December 2011. The morphology of Isoptera is thoroughly… 

Taxonomic and Ecological Notes on Termes propinquus Holmgren, 1914 Known from Sumatra (Blattodea: Termitoidae: Termitidae)

A careful morphological examination of the soldier caste of T. propinquus was discriminated from the three other congeners by a combination of the following characteristics: distinctly long frontal projection, larger head capsule, and 2nd antennal segment distinctly longer than the 3rd.

A Review of Ectoparasitic Fungi Associated With Termites

This review synthesize >120 yr of reports and studies on ectoparasitic fungi and their termite hosts to present an update to where knowledge rests and where the proceeding steps should be focused, and aims to unite knowledge from two disciplines, entomology and mycology, creating a literary source useful for entomologists andMycologists alike.

Revisiting Coptotermes (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae): a global taxonomic road map for species validity and distribution of an economically important subterranean termite genus

This project is intended to be a roadmap for identifying those Coptotermes species names that need to be more thoroughly investigated, as an incentive to complete a necessary revision process of the genus.

New World Heterotermes (Isoptera, Rhinotermitidae): molecular phylogeny, biogeography and description of a new species

This study provides a molecular phylogeny of all New World species of Heterotermes, including biogeographical analysis, and describes a new species from Paraguay and Bolivia, based on morphological and molecular evidence.

Molecular Identity of Holomastigotes (Spirotrichonymphea, Parabasalia) with Descriptions of Holomastigotes flavipes n. sp. and Holomastigotes tibialis n. sp.

Phylogenetic analyses placed all sequences in an exclusive and well‐supported clade with the type species, Holomastigotes elongatum from R. lucifugus, however, the phylogenetic position of Holomastsigotes within the Spirotrichonymphea was not resolved.

Twelve New Taxa of Xylaria Associated with Termite Nests and Soil from Northeast Thailand

This study is the first to report on the novel Xylaria species associated with termite nests or growing on soil in Thailand, and it confirmed that subgenus Pseudoxylaria is likely highly diverse in the country.

Listado preliminar de Mantodea, Blattodea y Orthoptera (Insecta) de la región de Piura, Perú

The first checklist of Mantodea, Blattodea and Orthoptera of Piura region in Peru is presented based on samplings of specimens and records in the bibliography. In total 32 species from 15 families

Phylogeny, biogeography and classification of Teletisoptera (Blattaria: Isoptera)

Overall, the results suggest that early diverging termite lineages acquired their current distribution through a combination of over‐water dispersals and dispersal via land bridges.

Ecology of termites from the genus Nasutitermes (Termitidae: Nasutitermitinae) and potential for science-based development of sustainable pest management programs

The goal was to gain new insights into the management of N. corniger, considered to be the most economically detrimental pest of this genus in South America and a Nasutitermes model species, while filtering available information concerning its biology through the prism of termite control, as well as critically examine the existing methods.
