The sources and uses of arsenic

For many years in the USA wood has been pressure treated with chromium copper arsenate (CCA) to prevent it rotting and being eaten by termites indeed 70 of treated timber products were protected with CCA and the industry was worth 4 billion a year, using 150 million of CCA at 350 facilities around the nation. As of December 2003 the use of this preservative started being phased out in favour of a copper boron compound, although other countries still permit its use.

Microbial Communities

The classic anaerobic food web first described by Hungate, and later by Wolf, which occurs in the rumen, involves the interpopulation interactions among bacterial communities capable of plant polysaccharide hydrolysis (e.g. cellulose), monomer fermenting communities, fatty acid-oxidizing communities, and, finally, terminal communities (e.g. methanogenesis), which oxidize fatty acids and reduce CO2 to CH4. The hydrogen is derived from previous oxidative steps. The coupling, or syntrophic, relationship between hydrogen producers and hydrogen consumers (interspecies hydrogen transfer) is now recognized as a fundamental relationship in other systems dominated by anaerobic microorganisms. In the rumen, rates and extent of metabolism are controlled by the interdependence of one community on another. The rumen system has also served as an example of a strategy for, an approach to, and methods to conduct similar investigations of animal-microbe associations, be it the crop of tropical birds...

Ornamentation and the Extended Phenotype

The bowerbirds show the evolutionary continuity between body ornamentation and art. They happen to construct their courtship displays out of twigs and orchids instead of growing them from feathers like their cousins, the birds-of-paradise. We happen to apply colored patterns to rock or canvas. Biologists no longer draw a boundary around the body and assume that anything beyond the body is beyond the reach of evolution. In The Extended Phenotype, Richard Dawkins argued that genes are often selected for effects that spread outside the body into the environment. It is meaningful to talk about genes for a spider's web, a termite's

Function Of Symbiotic Microorganisms

Symbiotic microorganisms in the gut of some insects fix N2 at appreciable rates no intracellular N2-fixing bacteria in bacteriocytes have been described. In particular, many termite species derive significant supplementary nitrogen from N2-fixing bacteria (e.g., Enterobacter agglomerans and Citrobacter freundii) in the anoxic portion of their hindgut. The N2 fixation rate varies widely among termite species, from < 0.2 g N fixed g insect weight day in Labiotermes sp. and Cubitermes sp. to > 6g N g day in Nasutitermes species, and is also influenced by environmental conditions, including the concentration of combined nitrogen in the diet. Nitrogen recycling refers to the microbial consumption of nitrogenous waste products of insects and the synthesis of compounds (e.g., essential amino acids) of nutritional value to the insect, which are then translocated back to the animal. Microbial utilization of insect-derived uric acid or ammonia has been demonstrated in several systems,...

Protozoa

Protozoa that occur in the digestive tract of animals are grouped broadly into flagellates and ciliates. In most animals, flagellates occur in low numbers (< 103 g) therefore, their contribution to overall gut fermentation is considered to be nonsignificant. However, intestinal flagellates do play a significant role in the hindgut digestion in termites and other insects, such as wood roaches, that thrive largely on cellulosic materials.

Kinship

Organisms in proportion to the true percentage of genes we share with them. Don't all humans share about 99 percent of our DNA That sounds close to identical twins, who share 100 percent of their DNA. If we share so many of our genes with other humans, why should we discriminate between close relatives and distant relatives And don't we share about half of our genes with other mammals, birds and even fish We should treat all herring as brothers and all sloths as sisters. We should apply the golden rule to all primates, be true friends to all mammals, allies to termites and tapeworms, and just slightly grudging compatriots of baobab trees, stinging nettles, and Antarctic lichens. Universal peace, cooperation, and symbiosis should reign on our blessed planet, according to this genetic-similarity interpretation of kinship.

Object manipulation

Capuchins are among the greatest tool users after the chimpanzees and humans. They show finger independence and demonstrate different types of fine grip (Costello & Fragaszy 1988). Capuchins have the ability to combine actions, objects and surfaces and perform activities that are rarely observed in other monkeys, such as banging, rubbing, or sliding objects against a substrate (Fragaszy & Adam-Curtis 1991). Capuchins are able to use stones or wood blocks to crack nuts, sticks to inspect inaccessible locations or different materials as sponges (Visalberghi 1990 Westergaard & Fragazy 1987). In Old World monkeys, the use of the precision grip is most remarkable. It allows them to hold an object between the flexed fingers and the opposed thumb, without participation of the palm. An example of its use in natural contexts is social grooming. Tanaka (1995) describes how Japanese macaques remove lice eggs through grooming. They dexterously use a single finger to separate hairs on the...

Abstract

Social insects (honey- and bumblebees, wasps, hornets, ants and termites) are interesting in many aspects, among them the energetic advantages of social life and conquering of unfavourable territories. Own investigations and data from lit er ature deal with the energy metabolism of these insects (except termites because of experimental difficulties), with locomotor activities, energy balances of foraging, energy saving by insulation of wasp nests compared with the afford to construct the wooden envelope, bee cluster strategy for surviving at low temperatures, and rearing of brood.

Gut microbiota

Insect behavior is also implicated in the transmission of obligately anaerobic microorganisms, especially the cellulolytic protists in certain woodroaches and the lower termites. At each molt of the insect, the oxygen tension in the hindgut increases dramatically and all the protists are killed. In Cryptocercus, the pro-tists initiate sexual reproduction just before each molt and are transformed into oxygen-resistant cysts. They are expelled from the hindgut into the environment, where they persist until ingested by the insect after molting. In contrast, the protists in lower termites rarely reproduce sexually and never encyst, and they are killed at each insect molt. The termites acquire a fresh inoculum of protists by feeding on a drop of hindgut contents from the anus of another colony member, a behavior known as proctodeal trophyl-laxis. It has been suggested that the requirement for conspecifics as a source of protists may have been a major selection pressure for the evolution of...

Conclusion

In his classic text, The Mirage of Health, published forty years before the GM controversy, Rene Dubos noted the widespread conviction that maintaining the scientific status quo would safeguard humanity against new threats 'It is often suggested that a moratorium on science would give mankind the opportunity to search its soul and discover a solution to the problems that threaten its very survival' (Dubos 1960 214). He commented that 'this static formula of survival' was 'not new' 'indeed it has been used with much biological success by social insects'. Through a highly stratified and efficient mode of organisation, colonies of ants and termites had solved many of

Colony defense

As we have seen in the previous section, social insect colonies contain large amounts of energy, either as brood or as stock (honey, pollen). The energy resources stored in a nest are alluring to predators and parasites which leads to a strong selection to evolve means of colony defence. The most annoying aspect of social insect life to humans is that the vast maj ority of all species have evolved poisonous stings. Even without stingers, which have been lost in many ants and some bees, the poison glands remain. In social insects, the defence of the colony is one of the most important tasks for all colony members, but the action of one sting against a large predator (e.g. many honey-hunting mammals, including humans) is not sufficient to protect a colony. A strong selection for rapid communication to recruit nestmates against predators or intruders led to the evolution of alarm pheromones. These pheromones, which can be found in honeybees, ants, wasps and termites, induce aggressive...
