Volatile emission during vertebrate decay is a complex process that is understood incompletely. It depends on many factors. The main factor is the metabolism of the microbial species present inside and on the vertebrate. In this review, we combine the results from studies on volatile organic compounds (VOCs) detected during this decay process and those on(More)
Acanthocnemus nigricans is an Australian pyrophilic beetle approaching smoldering logs for mating and oviposition. We investigated the behavior of the beetles towards combustion products of cellulose (5-methylfurfural, hydroxacetone, karrikinolide), lignin (4-methylguaiacol, 4-ethylguaiacol, eugenol), and (Z)-3-hexen-1-ol in a custom built dynamic two arm(More)
