How do animals use chemical cues for communication in terrestrial environments?

    Chemical cues play a vital role in terrestrial communication among animals. Through the release of pheromones and other chemical signals, individuals convey information about their identity, reproductive status, and territory boundaries. These cues are particularly important in the dark or dense environments where visual and auditory communication may be limited. The ability to interpret chemical signals enhances social interactions and contributes to the overall fitness and survival of many species.
