Abstract

This study investigates termite activity and its effects on chemical, physical and micromorphological attributes of soils and termite mounds, at different topographic positions, in a degraded grassland area. This toposequence of Latosols (Oxisols) is located in Viçosa, in the region of Zona da Mata, Minas Gerais State. The results show that the textural and chemical uniformity of Latosols may be increased, following the pedobiological turnover during mound building
