About this book

This practical manual represents a comprehensive, up-to-date compilation of useful chemical ecology techniques and references. Written from the viewpoint of the practitioner, this book and its companion volume on chemical methods describe apparatus and methods, providing detailed discussions of the advantages and limitations of various techniques. Taken together, the volumes provide the information required to isolate and identify biologically active chemicals mediating inter- and intraspecific interactions between organisms from most of the major taxa. "Methods in Chemical Ecology: Bioassay Methods" covers bioassay techniques from a broad spectrum of species, ranging from microorganisms in aquatic environments to mammals in terrestrial habitats. This volume is designed to assist both ecologists and chemists with the sometimes daunting task of developing bioassay techniques to be used in the isolation and identification of natural products. The contributors, all highly respected active researchers, provide insights into the many pitfalls of bioassay design based on their years of experience. With minimal use of technical jargon, this volume is designed as an indispensable reference manual for graduate students as well as experienced researchers. This volume will also serve as a valuable reference book for researchers in many related disciplines, including animal behavior, natural-products chemistry, ecology, botany/plant sciences, zoology, entomology, marine biology and ecology, and pharmacology.

Media reviews
'Its greatest value is as a compilation of ideas to guide future work. As such, it is ideal for advanced students in chemical ecology, but it is also very readable and would be fascinating for those with general interests in ecology.' Journal of Environmental Quality, 28 (1999)
