Evidence-based, yet entirely practical, this important new text builds upon the basics of neuroscience to describe the link between olfaction, animal behavior, and the importance of odors for animal welfare.

Focusing on animals managed by humans and taking animal behavior as the starting point, the book is written in a straightforward style and features illustrated examples from many different species with in-depth research from acknowledged experts in the area.

From the scientific basis of olfaction and odor perception, the text covers pheromones, odorant learning, and behavioral tests before describing the role of olfaction in, for example, fear, foraging, and reproduction, and olfactory behavior in farm animals, zoo animals, laboratory animals, and companion animals.
