About this Research Topic
In 2006, twenty research environments in Sweden were allocated funding for a period of ten years. The aim of these so-called Linnaeus grants was to provide stable support for research of the highest quality. One of these grants, funded by SLU (www.slu.se) and Formas (www.formas.se), was awarded to researchers at the Chemical Ecology Group, SLU Alnarp.
The IC-E3 project - Insect Chemical Ecology, Ethology and Evolution - aims to understand how insects adapt olfactory-mediated behaviour to internal physiological state and to a changing environment, by phenotypic and genotypic modulation.
We here collect original research, opinion and review papers from IC-E3 participants and from other research groups, on the modulation of olfactory communication, from a short-term physiological to an evolutionary perspective.
