•Junior Editor Quiz on" TERMITES SOLDIERS KINGROYAL. IN AMRRICA, TERMITE* often LIVE IN PAMP |H AFRICA, THEY TAU- HOUSES QUESTION: How can termites thrive on a diet of wood? ANSWER: Termite colonies are among the most successful txamples in nature of millions of individuals managing to live together. There are three groupings or castes: the royal or reproductive caste, the workers and the soldiers. As our picture suggests, there are both kings and queens in the royal caste. Each colony is founded by a royal pair, who attend to producing the great number of eggs required. Each year, young members of this caste move out to form new colonies. The worker caste is the most numerous, making burrows and nests, gnawing wood and other materials which all the colony will use for food. The soldiers, with enormous heads and powerful jaws, defend the colony, especially against attacks by ants. Powerful as their jaws are, the soldiers can't get food by themselves and must depend on the workers. Termites can digest wood and other cellulose materials such as paper. They cause a great deal of damage to wooden houses. (Dee Anne Owen of McHenry, III., wins today's combined prize of Compton's Illustrated Science Dictionary plus $10, cash for this question.
