Background information and definitions
Pheromones are chemical substances released into the environment by an animal that can affect the behaviour or physiology of other animals of the same species. If pheromones can be synthesised that deter entry to crops by wild herbivores, this could reduce the motivation among farmers for carrying out lethal control of wild herbivores.
