Termites play an amazing role in the formation of soil. Termites are the precious member of the Detritivore, converting the rough and tough material back into fertile soil, providing food for the soil microbiome.
Termite mounds are the structures in several tropical ecosystems that are primarily built by termites (Jouquet et al. 2015). Soil from termite mounds is rich in mineral nutrients and organic matter, and these make it a suitable habitat for microorganisms (Nithyatharani and Kavitha 2018).
