Perception of Complex Smells and Tastes
This book disseminates the latest information on how humans, animals, insects, and marine life perceive complex odors and tastes. It tells how they use the information from these mixtures to analyze the food they eat, safety of their environment, reproductive status of partners, and how they respond to these complex stimuli.
