Chemistry is the universal language of nature. In this new geological age known as the Anthropocene, humans have not only impacted the environment but also the ecological interactions between organisms, including chemical communication. Chemical ecology is a field that examines these interactions. This field also allows us to develop ways we can adapt to human impacts on the very means by which organisms interact with each other. Dr. Shannon will present her groups’s research on chemical communication in the Indian context, particularly concerning pollination, pest management, and environmental pollution.
