Abstract:

The olfactory concealment theory demonstrates that olfaction is an effective method used by predators to locate prey because animals constantly release a stream of odorants. This book helps  Read more...

Publisher Synopsis

"The book is logically organized to describe the mechanics of olfaction and the physics of airflow before discussing species of predators and prey and their ecology. This may sound like dry reading Read more...
