Hands-On Chemical Ecology:

Simple Field and Laboratory Exercises

Authors: Müller-Schwarze, Dietland

  • This is the first book of practical exercises in chemical ecology. It is a good for this book because chemical ecology is still a young science. More and more colleges all over the world will offer courses and practical exercises in this field. A collection of field and lab exercises available now will accelerate this trend. The exercises are simple in the sense that they only require materials generally available. Each institution will be able to add or expand experiments by taking advantage of locally existing instruments.

About this Textbook

Hands-On Chemical Ecology: Simple Field and Laboratory Exercises, a premiere collection of practical exercises in chemical ecology, offers tools and strategies for understanding this young science. The exercises included use general principles and follow a simple structure. Topics examined include birds, fish, insects, mammals, and plant chemistry among others. Additionally, exercises require accessible materials, ensuring that each can be easily modified and completed anywhere in the world with locally existing instruments. This text will be of value to undergraduate and graduates students and high school biology teachers.
