Solvent extraction of bioactive molecules from glands, tissues, or whole organisms is a common first step in chemoecological studies. Co-extraction of a surplus of high boiling materials such as triacylglycerides (TAGs) and other lipids with higher molecular weight might hamper the identification of volatile or medium-volatile semiochemicals by high(More)
During autoshaping, a 6-second presentation of one stimulus and a variable time 30-second presentation of a second stimulus alternated in appearance on a pigeon key. Grain always was delivered for 3 seconds at the end of the first stimulus interval. In the first experiment, autoshaped pecking of the stimulus preceding grain delivery began much sooner when(More)
Four groups of pigeons were trained with a standard autoshaping procedure in which a brief fixed-duration interval always followed by a grain delivery alternated with a longer variable-duration interval never associated with grain delivery. One of two stimuli was always presented during each interval. One of them contained three black dots and a black star(More)
