Published Online: 2011-07-19 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/HF.2011.116


The effect of wood density and extractive compounds on heartwood durability against subterranean termites was studied. Twelve species of Malaysian hardwoods were tested against Coptotermes curvignathus and C. gestroi using a standard laboratory method. The results indicated that amount of extractive content is related to Malaysian hardwood termite durability.

Keywords: Coptotermes curvignathus; C. gestroi; extractive contents; natural durability; termite resistance; wood density
