Cuticular hydrocarbons for species determination of tropical termites
1990 - IRG/WP 1465
Insect species have unique mixtures of cuticular hydrocarbons in the protective wax of their integument. We use hydrocarbons to evaluate similarities among termite populations. Our assumption is that colonies with similar hydrocarbon profiles are closely related. We have collected Reticulitermes in California from areas suspected to have only Reticulitermes hesperus or Reticulitermes tibialis. The...

When the tree is infected (fungi, bacteria, etc.), its wood turns brownish or blackish (called agarwood) due to the secretion of an oleoresin in reaction to the infection. The resin is very fragrant and has been sought after and used for centuries by Buddhists, Hindus and Muslims to make incen...
