ENVB * 4130 – Chemical Ecology: Principles & Practice W (3-0) [0.50]

Chemicals mediate interactions between individuals of a species and between organisms and their host plants. These interactions can be manipulated and exploited to mange pest populations through the use of pheromones, allelochemicals and host plant resistance. The nature of these interactions (from behavioural to evolutionary), biological and chemical methods used in their investigation, and the application of chemical ecology to insect pest and plant disease management will be covered. (Offered in odd-numbered years.)
