For chemical communication
to occur within or between organisms, a receptor must have affinity for specific chemical ligands or signals, and this recognition must initiate a response.
One avenue of attack will begin in the laboratory as researchers look for ways to exploit weaknesses in the pest's biology, growth, chemical communication
, and behavior.
To do so, the employer must prepare a written hazardous chemical communication
Professor John Pickett CBE, a fellow of the Royal Society, was nominated for the honorary title by the University's School of Chemistry in recognition of his significant contribution to the understanding of chemical communication
in the natural world.
In chemical communication
in the aquatic environment, both the concentration and total amount of the signal molecules released from senders may be important for receivers to detect by their chemosensory organs, which have some threshold to odorant molecules (Derby and Atema, 1982).
The topics include hormonally derived pheromones in teleost fish, conspecific odors as sexual ornaments with dual functions in fish, chemical cues that indicate risk of predation, a hypothesized evolutionary trajectory for chemical communication
in fish, measuring and identifying fish pheromones, and application of pheromones in invasive fish control and fishery conservation.
Scott Cummins, a USC researcher and expert on aquatic animal chemical communication
, said that these findings could be a breakthrough in pest management.
Little is known about insects and other creatures that exploit ant chemical communication
In this accessible contribution to understanding the nature of chemical communication
, she disputes scientific studies that purport to show evidence for pheronomes driving such complex phenomena as sexual attraction, aggression, mood, menstrual synchrony, and the maternal bond.
Microglial cells help regulate the brain's chemical communication
system, as well as neuron growth and the formation of connections between neurons.
