Definition:The use of external chemical cues called pheromones to send social and sexual information between members of the same species, leading to specific behavioral responses. Pheromones may be detected by two olfactory sensory circuits, the main olfactory pathway and the vomeronasal system.
Comment:Behavior such as predation which involves members of different species is not social. Communication between members of different species is also not social behavior.
