Chemical Signals in Vertebrates 4: Ecology, Evolution, and by R. Mykytowycz (auth.), David Duvall, Dietland

By R. Mykytowycz (auth.), David Duvall, Dietland Müller-Schwarze, Robert M. Silverstein (eds.)

This quantity studies fresh advancements in our realizing of che~ ical signaling in vertebrates. After sections facing basic princi­ ples and chemical facets of vertebrate pheromones, it follows a taxonomic process, progressing from fish to. mammals. The editors requested a various, foreign staff of major investigators, engaged on a wide range of vertebrate taxa and particular matters, to think about their efforts from compar­ ative, evolutionary, and ecological viewpoints. The relative variety of manuscripts in each one half doesn't inevitably mirror present depth of study, because the editors invited audio system who jointly would offer a balanced and entire evaluate, whereas heading off duplication. nonetheless, the half on mammals is the longest. Fourth in a sequence courting from 1977, this quantity illuminates present traits and certain destiny advancements within the box of chemical signaling in vertebrates. Going again even farther, the 1st bankruptcy, a private account of the previous area century by means of Dr. Mykytowycz remembers an important milestones, comparable to symposia, or the founding of societies and journals. He additionally credit these investigators who stand out by way of their seminal studies.
