Title: Termites: here, there and everywhere?

Author: Peterson, Christopher;

Date: 2010

Source: EARTH 55(1):46-53

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: As a child growing up in Iowa, every summer I looked forward to our family’s annual trip to the woods in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. One of the highlights was going to “camp,” an old logging camp my grandfather purchased in the 1940s and maintained as a deer camp and weekend getaway. Off-road hiking in the Northwoods was slow. We had to maneuver our way around downed logs that sometimes piled two or three deep, and climb over a profusion of old stumps still charred from a massive fire that had burned through the area three or four decades before.
