What is chemical ecology?

Presented by Chemical communication is truly the unspoken language of nature, and chemical ecology examines the role of chemical interactions between living organisms and their environment. It is thus a vast and highly interdisciplinary field that offers both powerful insight into biological processes, as well as ecologically-based applications for agriculture, manufacturing, and medical industries. Main aims and goal:To provide an introduction to the field and overview of ways to identify and study chemical interactions in nature Target audience:Senior undergraduates with knowledge of some chemistry Worskhop organisers:Shannon Olsson and Radhika Venkatesan
