Description

Chemical communication in aquatic species can affect many key life history traits, such as prey and predator detection and mate searching. However, changes in the environment can disrupt the effectiveness of signals and the ability of individuals to detect these signals. Many studies have examined the effect of secondary compounds from exotic plants on the ecology and physiology of a range of taxa, but whether the replacement of natural forests with exotic trees influences the behavioural...[Show more]
