Ação dos térmitas no solo

Abstract: RESUMOA ordem Isoptera é bastante conhecida pelo seu potencial como praga, apesar dos cupins-praga constituírem a minoria dentro do grupo. Os cupins (térmitas) são invertebrados dominantes em ambientes terrestres tropicais e estão espalhados desde as florestas úmidas até as savanas, sendo encontrados até mesmo em regiões áridas, nos mais variados habitats. Esses insetos têm um papel destacado e ainda pouco estudado nos ecossistemas tropicais. Ciclagem de nutrientes, aeração, infiltração de água do solo, biotur… Show more

“…Therefore, they have been addressed in studies in different parts of the world, considering the impact of their activities on the soil, as well as their constructions. At the landscape scale, termite activities play a key role in the distribution of resources (Jouquet et al, 2004) through physical changes in biotic or abiotic materials (Ferreira et al, 2011). On a smaller scale, especially in the tropical savanna, termites are known to significantly influence soil properties (Rückamp et al, 2012) with the construction of their nests (termite mounds) (Fall et al, 2001).…”

“…Este resultado pode ser atribuído a um conjunto de fatores como maiores valores de Ksat, menor declividade, fatores físico-hídricos do solo, entre outros. No que se refere a estes fatores, a presença e adição constante de matéria orgânica do solo sob floresta favorece a agregação do solo e também estimula a atividade de organismos que produzem poros de variados tamanhos (Ferreira et al, 2011). Da mesma forma, a maior porosidade do solo também é favorecida pela grande quantidade de raízes (Bonell, 2005).…”

“…The species belonging to the genus Cornitermes are responsible for the construction of the vast majority of these structures, most of which are found on the surface of the soil (FERREIRA et al, 2011). In Brazil, the term "mound-building cupim" has been associated almost exclusively with the species Cornitermes cumulans (Kollar, 1832), due to the high frequency with which their nests can be found; these are mainly in pastures in the Southeast, as well as in parts of the Central-West, South, and Northeast regions of Brazil (VALÉRIO, 2006).…”

“…This is due to the increase in pH, porosity, clay content, organic matter, and nutrients in termite nests, as compared with the surrounding soil that has not been affected by these organisms (ACKERMAN et al, 2007;SARCINELLI et al, 2009;COSARINSKY, 2011;ECHEZONA et al, 2012;SARCINELLI et al, 2013). It is known that the resistant outer layer of the mounds built by Cornitermes cumulans is mainly made of soil, while the central chamber where the colony lives is rich in organic matter (REDFORD, 1984;FERREIRA et al, 2011).…”
