Chemical ecology, the study of chemically mediated spe-
cies interactions, is an exciting and rapidly growing area of
research. Recent advances involve the understanding of
chemical mechanisms of interactions in the context of field
experiments. This linkage is yielding fascinating insights into
1) the natural history of chemically mediated species inter-
actions (i.e., the series of papers on chemical defense in in-
sects spearheaded by T. Eisner), 2) the importance of chem-
ically mediated interactions in structuring ecological com-
munities (i.e., work by M.E. Hay et al.), and 3) the prediction
and manipulation of chemically mediated interactions in an
