1 Proteins The molecular size of non-volatile compounds may be very high. , 1989). It belongs to the alpha-α2µ -globulin superfamily and is very similar to the major urinary proteins (MUPs) in mice (Fig. 3), the bovine β-lactoglobulin from cow’s milk, and the pyrazine-binding protein in the nasal mucosa. Mouse urinary proteins The urine of male mice contains high levels of MUPs, which play an important role in scent communication. 6 non-volatiles f i g u r e 2 . 3 Major urinary protein (MUP) of mouse, showing region of polymorphic variation.

9 Life expectancy of chemical signals Volatiles evaporate, and signals become weaker over time. In mixtures, evaporation of the more-volatile compounds can change the quality of the odor and the range over which it can be detected. 11 interaction of olfactory and visual signals changing signals potentially provide information about the age of the scent mark and, in turn, the recent behavioral history of the odor donor. Ferkin and Johnston (1995a) aged anogenital area scent and odor from the posterolateral region in meadow voles (Microtus pennsylvanicus) for 15 minutes to 30 days.

2) The anal gland secretion of beaver, C. canadensis, differs between the sexes (Grønneberg, 1978–79). The male grey duiker, Sylvicapra grimmia, has more 2heptanone and 2-nonadecanone in its preorbital secretion than the female. Two thiazoles (2-isobutyl-1,3-thiazole and 2-isobutyl-4,5-dihydro-1,3-thiazole) and an epoxy ketone (3,4-epoxy-2-dodecanone) are also more abundant in the male’s secretion. , 1990). In European moles, Talpa europaea, a series of carboxylic acids dominates the anal gland secretion of both adult males and anestrous females.
