Abstract

A preliminary investigation on the possible existence of rhythmic trends in behavioural patterns of the termite Kalotermes flavicolliswas performed in laboratory colonies, for threee consecutive days, using scan sampling technique. Except for grooming and feeding behaviour, frequencies of all activities tend to decline along the three days in all castes. only feeding behaviour varies significantly among different times of the day: chewing wood is performed by non-terminal stages, mostly from hours 0000 to 0600. Grooming activities are homogeneously performed all day long, although they appear to intensify from 0600 to 1200.
