Most people associate termites with damage to buildings and crops, but these insects also play key roles in the functioning of dry ecosystems. They enrich soil quality by processing and concentrating organic matter, and their complex subterranean nests promote water infiltration. Termite mounds form in a strikingly uniform pattern that evenly distributes the biological wealth across the landscape.
