About these proceedings


In August 2017, the Chemical Signals in Vertebrates (CSiV) group held its 14th triennial meeting. This well established international conference brings together leaders and students in the field of olfactory communication and chemical signaling of vertebrates to present new advances in their research as well as synopses of disparate areas under new angles. This volume is a collection of the proceedings of this meeting that covers a wide variety of topics in chemical ecology.

About the editors

Dr. Christina D. Buesching is a Zoology Research Fellow with Oxford University’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit and is passionate about animal welfare and conservation. She did her MSc thesis on the reproductive behavior and physiology of Lesser Mouse Lemurs at the German Primate Centre and her DPhil on olfactory communication in European badgers at the University of Oxford. Since, she published over 100 scientific papers on a diverse range of ecological paradigms. Her main research interest, however, remains the role of semio-chemistry in animal reproductive behavior, where she focuses predominantly on the European badger as a model species.
