Pheromones are chemical signals (semiochemicals) that act between members of the same species, sex pheromones being the signals that facilitate sexual reproduction. Many organisms use such semiochemicals, but it is insects to which the main research attention has been directed. This article will therefore concentrate on the insect sex pheromones.
