Alarm pheromones of rainbow darters: Responses to skin extracts of conspecifics and congeners

Abstract

Rainbow darters Etheostoma caeruleum exposed to extracts from macerated skin of both conspecifics and of yoke darkers E. juliae responded with decreased activity. Both species have epidermal sacciform cells that are candidates as the source of the pheromone.
