Table 4 Correlation between environmental factors (atmospheric temperature, relative humidity and precipitation) and caste composition of termites

From: Impact of environmental factors on the population dynamics, density and foraging activities of Odontotermes lokanandi and Microtermes obesi in Islamabad

Termites species Atmospheric temp (°C) Relative humidity (%) Precipitation (mm)
M. obesi r =0.184*, P = 0.005 r = −0.208*, P = 0.001 r = 0.069 ns, P = 0.292
O. lokanandi r = −0.090 ns, P = 0.084 r = 0.174*, P = 0.001 r = 0.159*, P = 0.002
  1. * = Significantly different at 5% level of significance. ns Non-significant.
