Hardege, J. D., Bartels-Hardege, H. D., Fletcher, N., Terschak, J. A., Harley, M., Smith, M. A., …Bublitz, R. (2011). Identification of a female sex pheromone in Carcinus maenas. Marine ecology progress series, 436, 177-189. https://doi.org/10.3354/meps09226

Despite major progress in our understanding of animal signaling systems, the identification of chemical signals in aquatic organisms is still in its infancy. Exemplary for this is the lack of structural knowledge of crustacean sex pheromones despite... Read More about Identification of a female sex pheromone in Carcinus maenas.

Simultaneously hermaphroditic shrimp use lipophilic cuticular hydrocarbons as contact sex pheromones (2011)
Journal Article
Hardege, J. D., Harley, M. A., Lin, J., Terschak, J. A., & Zhang, D. (2011). Simultaneously hermaphroditic shrimp use lipophilic cuticular hydrocarbons as contact sex pheromones. PloS one, 6(4), e17720. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0017720

Successful mating is essentially a consequence of making the right choices at the correct time. Animals use specific strategies to gain information about a potential mate, which is then applied to decision-making processes. Amongst the many informati...
