Springer, 2004. — 240 p. — (Topics in Current Chemistry 239) — ISBN: 3540208283Chemistry becomes particularly interesting when reaching out to other disciplines and this has been documented impressively over the last few decades by many cooperative efforts with biology. One of these fields which is now over forty years old is what most chemists know as pheromone research, started in 1959 by Butenandt with the identification of the first pheromone, bombykol. But pheromones are only part of the larger area of inter-individual chemical communication in general. This means of transportation of information is not used to a great extent by human beings, but vastly exploited by other living organisms. The research on these subject is part of Chemical Ecology, a discipline which tries to understand why secondary metabolites are produced by a certain organism and what their effects and functions are in an ecological perspective. This field goes beyond the normally anthropocentric view of traditional natural product research with its focus on application for human welfare.
