Pheromones are chemicals capable of acting like hormones outside the body of the secreting individual, to impact the behavior of the receiving individuals. Pheromones are used from basic unicellular prokaryotes to complex multicellular eukaryotes. In addition, some vertebrates , plants and ciliates communicate by using pheromones. Lintner , Adolf Butenandt , and ethologist Karl von Frisch who called them various names, like for instance "alarm substances". Aggregation pheromones function in mate selection, overcoming host resistance by mass attack, and defense against predators.
Human behaviors are probably influenced by invisible smell signals, just like all other animals. DOI: Powerful messages can be delivered by smell, a fact known long before the means by which they did so was discovered. The ancient Greeks knew that secretions from a female dog in heat were attractive to male dogs. As two ants meet along a pheromone-marked trail, they touch antennae to sense the odorants on the other, recognizing a colony mate.

A review of the literature is presented that gives a background to the human sense of smell, then the importance of learnt and innate olfactory cues in animal behaviour. Some possible roles for natural products chemists interested in the interaction between animals and plants are discussed. Natural Products chemists are conspicuous when they are wandering in the bush.
