Title: Abundance, distribution, and colony size estimates for Reticulitermes spp. (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) in Southern Mississippi

Author: Howard, Ralph W.; Jones, Susan C.; Mauldin, Joe K.; Beal, Raymond H.;

Date: 1982

Source: Environ. Entomol., Vol. 11: 1290-1293

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: A census of 24 1-ha plots indicated an average abundance per ha of 4.42 colonies of Reticulitermes flavipes (Kollar) and 2.38 colonies of R. virginicus (Banks). Nearest neighbor analysis indicated the mean distance between colonies of R. Flavipes to be 22.48 M, between colonies of R. virginicus to be 26.19m, and between colonies, irrespective of species, to be 16.80 m. Six R. flavipes colonies were selected by a ranked-set sampling method, and the mean colony size was estimated to be 244,445 termites
