Appendage-mediated attachment in spores of lignicolous marine fungi
1982 - IRG/WP 487
The role of appendages in aiding attachment and entrapment of marine fungal spores to wood substrata is described in this paper. Scanning electron microscope (S.E.M.) observations indicated five different classes of attachment or entrapment response in the sixteen species examined. These responses varied -hith the degree to which appendages attached or entrapped spores to wood surfaces. In additio...

The “wire-loop slicing technique” for the rapid field collection of large numbers of Coptotermes acinaciformis termites from above-ground mound colonies
2006 - IRG/WP 06-10583
This technique of rapidly slicing through an above-ground C. acinaciformis mound colony with a steel wire-loop attached to a vehicle allows the collection of large numbers of termites. The sliced mound topples onto a tarpaulin arranged on the ground, the outer wall layers break away in large segments, and the carton materials incorporating the termites are readily collected and transferred to larg...
