    • Abstract

       

      No diurnal fluctuation in temperature and relative humidity inside the mound ofOdontotermes obesus (Rambur) has been noticed and the fluctuations through the year were within a narrow range (4° C; 4%). Sudden fall in temperature from the maximum in May to the minimum in June, July and August was probably due to emergence of alates in June.
