The body odor of birds has the potential to alter fundamentally our interpretation of avian social behavior by challenging the traditional view that conspecific interactions are primarily guided by sight and sound. Here, I review studies of the crested auklet (Aethia cristatella), a socially monogamous seabird with a seasonally elevated citrusy scent associated with an unusual display behavior. Work on A. cristatella includes investigations of chemistry, social function, and adaptive value of… CONTINUE READING
