Diet-Mediated Pheromones and Signature Mixtures Can Enforce Signal Reliability
Diet is arguably the most significant environmental factor shaping chemical signals in animals. In rare cases, dietary components are converted directly into pheromones or signature mixtures but more… Expand

The prevalence of artificial light at night (ALAN) is increasing rapidly around the world. The potential physiological costs of this night lighting are often evident in life history shifts. We… Expand
The potential role of web-based putrescine as a prey-attracting allomone
The use of prey-attracting allomones is likely to be an effective foraging strategy for sit-and-wait predators. Despite this, the production and efficacy of such allomones have rarely been… Expand

Pheromones, arguably the most ubiquitous mode of animal communication, are determined by both genetic and environmental factors. Recent evidence suggests that diet may be an important determinant of… Expand
Pheromones-based sexual selection in a rapidly changing world.
Insects utilise chemical cues for a range of different purposes and the complexity and degree of specificity of these signals is arguably unparalleled in the animal kingdom. Chemical signals are… Expand
