Population-level responses of fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) to alarm substances and predator odourDownload
Alarm substances, released by injured prey, and odours from predators, such as northern pike, are chemical cues associated with increased predation risk in aquatic ecosystems. In laboratory studies, individual prey can respond to the presence of such cues by reducing conspicuous behaviours, such...
Variations in jack pine (Pinus banksiana) monoterpene composition and subsequent effects on pheromone production by mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae)Download
The secondary compounds of pines (Pinus) can strongly affect the physiology, ecology and behaviour of bark beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae) that feed on host sub-cortical tissues. Jack pine (Pinus banksiana) has a wide distribution range in North America and thus variations in its...
