    Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


    The great mount building, grass-eating termite colonies that dominate the savannas of northern Australia develop their own specialized groups. Reproduction is handled by one or more queens, defensive behavior, is largely restricted to soldier termites, and the tasks of nest building, food gathering and waste excretion are the jobs of the worker caste.
