exiguus only that is a phytophagous/ xylophagous
termite affecting plants from the family Poaceae, being identified as pest in sugarcane cultivars in Brazil (Ferreira et al., 2009).
In its native area, this xylophagous
insect can attack healthy trees.
Neotropical tree species and their faunas of Xylophagous
longicorns (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in French Guiana.
Due to its extremely long ovipositor, elongate and tubular body, long legs and the fact that specimens have been collected on dead or fell trees, it is suggested that the species of Leptofoeninae could be parasitoids of xylophagous
beetles (Boucek, 1959; Brues, 1924; Dodd, 1927; Hanson & Heydon, 2006).
, the microbial content of a xylophagous
beetle's gut is a hyperdiverse source of undescribed species.
(2011), decreased levels of physical and mechanical properties are due to the weakening of the cell wall of the wood caused by the action of xylophagous
Screening and identification of newly isolated cellulose degrading bacteria from the gut of xylophagous
termite Microcerotermes diversus (Silvestri).
But according to some authors (ESTEVES; PEREIRA, 2009; HILL, 2006; XIE et al., 2002), it has long been known that thermal modification processes lead to chemical changes in wood's structure, which improves its dimensional stability and resistance against attack by xylophagous
. Successful results have been reported in the literature of thermal modification processes to improve the dimensional stability of eucalypt wood (BATISTA et al., 2011; BRITO et al., 2006; CALONEGO et al., 2012; ESTEVES et al., 2007a, 2007b).
