Mean mass loss in Pinus radiata test samples subjected to bioassay against Coptotermes acinaciformis and Mastotermes
Preliminary studies on the control of neotenic formation in Mastotermes darwiniensis Froggatt (Isoptera).
A re-examination of the development of castes in Mastotermes darwiniensis Frogatt (Isoptera).
Mastotermes darwiniensis is the remarkable sole survivor of Paleocene termites of the family Mastotermidae.
The cellulolytic protists and their attached motile eubacteria here share the same habitat--the intestine of the Australian dry-wood-ingesting termite Mastotermes darwiniensis.
The micrographs in this Mastotermes darwiniensis series may be interpreted as legacies of steps in the evolutionary integration of motile (free-swimming) gram-negative eubacteria into the surface of the organism to which they are en masse attached.
The test sites were near Darwin in the Northern Territory and known to be inhabited by Australia's most economically destructive species, Coptotermes acinaciformis (Froggatt), and the giant northern termite Mastotermes
The eight amber-encased termites that Grimaldi, Margulis, and their colleagues recently studied belong to an extinct species dubbed Mastotermes electrodominicus.
However, some isolated wings found in sediments as many as 130 million years old may belong to the Mastotermes group as well.
Blocks of either radiata pine (Pinus radiata) or spotted gum (Corymbia maculata) were treated with formulations, leached and then exposed to either Coptotermes acinaciformis or Mastotermes
Wheeler's group studied an extinct termite called Mastotermes
Like the CHH products, Hyne T2 has been exposed to rigorous field testing and has proven to provide effective resistance to all subterranean termites with the exception of Mastotermes
which only occur north of the tropic of Capricorn.
acinaciformis does not appear to initiate damage through the end grain of timber specimens whereas Mastotermes
darwiniensis Froggatt can.
Site 1 was chosen because of its known high incidence of the Giant Northern Termite, Mastotermes darwiniensis (Froggatt).
