Influence of Activities of Termites on Some Physical and Chemical Properties of Soils under Different Land Use Patterns: A Review
Orhue Ehi Robert, Uzu Ogbonnaya Frank and Osaigbovo Ulamen Agbonsalo

Abstract:
This study revealed that termites are found all over the world with numerous species that have existed on this earth in the past million of years. The most prominent among these various species under different land use patterns is the Isoptera. Generally, termite activities in the soil affect the nutrient and organic matter dynamics, productivity of the ecosystem via carbon sequestration, nutrient recycling as well as some physical properties of the soil.
