Abstract/Contents:"The distinctive vegetation of some anthills in chalk grasslands is shown diagrammatically, and some differences between the soils of anthills and those of the surrounding grasslands are discussed. The termite mounds of the tropics also have soils differing from those of the grasslands in which they are built; some harvester termites destroy areas of pasture: and the large mounds of fungus-eating termites hinder mechanical cultivation. Temperate and tropical pastures benefit from control of ants and termites."
