Abstract

Chemical ecology has been recognized as an important and distinct research area for over three decades and it deals with the chemical mechanisms which help control intra- and inter-specific interactions amongst forms of life. All organisms use chemical signals to transmit information as a form of communication (Dicke 2009). Research in the field of chemical ecology involves the identification and synthesis of the chemical substances as well as the measurement of the ecological consequences of signal transfer (Dicke and Takken 2006).
