Description:

The fairy circles of Kaokoland (Northwest Namibia) - is the harvester termite Hodotermes mossambicus the prime causal factor in circle formation?

Summary / Notes:

In a research article, published in "Basic and Applied Ecology" in 2000, the authors T. Becker and S. Getzin described dynamics and characteristics of the so-called fairy circles in Kaokoland (North-West Namibia). The objective of the present opinion paper was to write a comment upon the findings of Becker and Getzin and to encourage future research, which will result in a sound theory about the origin of the fairy circles in Namibia. Keywords: Entomology, desert, foraging activity, hodotermitidae, Kaokoland, shrub, subterranean termites.

Year: 2002
