Summary In August 2017, the Chemical Signals in Vertebrates (CSiV) group held its 14th triennial meeting. This well established international conference brings together leaders and students in the field of olfactory communication and chemical signaling of vertebrates to present new advances in their research as well as synopses of disparate areas under new angles. This volume is a collection of the proceedings of this meeting that covers a wide variety of topics in chemical ecology.
