E — Soldiers F — Worker Worker termites undertake the most labour within the colony, being responsible for foraging, food storage, and brood and nest maintenance. The process of worker termites feeding other nestmates is known as trophallaxis. Trophallaxis is an effective nutritional tactic to convert and recycle nitrogenous components.
History[ edit ] A prospector riding a camel which held a world record for distance travelled without water milesCamels had been used successfully in desert exploration in other parts of the world. The first suggestion of importing camels into Australia was made in by Danish-French geographer and journalist Conrad Malte-Brunwhose Universal Geography contains the following; For such an expedition, men of science and courage ought to be selected.
They ought to be provided with all sorts of implements and stores, and with different animals, from the powers and instincts of which they may derive assistance.
They should have oxen from Buenos Aires, or from the English settlements, mules from Senegal, and dromedaries from Africa or Arabia.
The oxen would traverse the woods and the thickets; the mules would walk securely among rugged rocks and hilly countries; the dromedaries would cross the sandy deserts.
Thus the expedition would be prepared for any kind of territory that the interior might present. Dogs also should be taken to raise game, and to discover springs of water; and it has even been proposed to take pigs, for the sake of finding out esculent roots in the soil. When no kangaroos and game are to be found the party would subsist on the flesh of their own flocks.
They should be provided with a balloon for spying at a distance any serious obstacle to their progress in particular directions, and for extending the range of observations which the eye would take of such level lands as are too wide to allow any heights beyond them to come within the compass of their view.
The surviving camel was named Harry. He became known as the 'man who was shot by his own camel'. On 1 September Horrocks was preparing to shoot a bird on the shores of Lake Dutton. His kneeling camel moved while Horrocks was reloading his gun, fatally injuring Horrocks by injuring the middle fingers of his right hand and a row of teeth.
The Victorian Government imported 24 camels for the expedition. They cared for the camels, loaded and unloaded equipment and provisions and located water on the expedition.
Carting goods and transporting wool bales by camel was a lucrative livelihood for them. As their knowledge of the Australian outback and economy increased, Muslim cameleers began their own businesses, importing and running camel trains.
By the camel business was dominated by Muslim merchants and brokers, commonly referred to as "Afghans" or "Ghans", despite their origin often being British India now Pakistan as well as Afghanistan.
They belonged to four main groups: Pashtan, Baluchi, Punjabi, and Sindhi. At least 15, camels with their handlers are estimated to have come to Australia between and Other dromedaries included the Bishari riding camel of North Africa and Arabia.
There was also a government stud camel farm at Londonderry, near Coolgardie in Western Australia, established in The introduction of the Immigration Restriction Act and the White Australia policy made it more difficult for cameleers to enter Australia.
Pitjantjatjara man Andy Tjilari describes camping with his family as a child, when a man traveling with camels arrived in search of dingo scalps. When the initial shock wore off, Mr Tjilari describes following the camels with his family, mimicking them and talking to them.
The discovery led him to assert that "this horse is ignorant". An exchange of skills, knowledge and goods soon developed. Some cameleers assisted Aboriginal people by carrying traditional exchange goods, including red ochre or the narcotic plant piturialong ancient trade routes such as the Birdsville Track.
The cameleers also brought new commodities such as sugar, tea, tobacco, clothing and metal tools to remote Aboriginal groups. Aboriginal people incorporated camel hair into their traditional string artefacts, and provided information on desert waters and plant resources.
Some cameleers employed Aboriginal men and women to assist them on their long desert treks. This resulted in some enduring partnerships, and several marriages. On most journeys, he employed Arrernte man Mickey Dow Dow as cameleer, guide and translator and sometimes a man called Barney.
For many people, this was their first experience of Christmas and the event picturesquely established "an association between camels, gifts and Christianity that was not merely symbolic but had material reality". They learnt camel-handling skills and acquired their own animals, extending their mobility and independence in a rapidly changing frontier society.
Feral population[ edit ] With the introduction of motorised transportation in the s and s, some cameleers released their camels into the wild. Well suited to the arid conditions of Central Australia, these camels became the source for the large population of feral camels still existing today.
Australia is the only country with feral herds of camels, the largest population in the world. It has the only herd of dromedary one-humped camels exhibiting wild behaviour in the world. The exact population of Australian feral camels is not known. In the number of feral camels was estimated to be more than one million, with the capability of doubling in number every 8 to 10 years.Greenriver Industry Co., Ltd.

Historically in the white goods industry, competitive strategies had been based on domestic country-markets. Regional (e.g. pan-European) strategies were perceived as being less appropriate, high-risk and unprofitable. Research into the white goods market shows that, " since , the market has been robust and benefited from a strong economy, due to high levels of personal disposable income and an active housing market with few windfalls." This therefore emphasizes that when considering PEST analysis the economy is an important aspect when considering a marketing approach in the white goods market.4/4(1).
