dc.description.abstractINTRODUCTION: The application of mass spectral techniques in the identifica tion of compounds invo lved in chemical communication between living organisms will be discussed in this a rticle. These biologically highly active chemical compounds are lumped together under the term " se miochemicals" from the Greek Sl!mion , a sign. Depending on the relationship between the producer and receiver of a chemical message, various other terms, such as pheromones, allomones, and kairomones, are also used to define these compounds or mixtures of compounds. An allomone, for example, could thus be a single compound or a mixture of compounds that together elicit a specific reaction in the target organism.en_ZA
