Well now, my degree is in Geology and not biology, but I have some
thoughts. If you are talking about a significant human response for
PHEREMONES - I say you are right on target. I believe that all
"feelings" that we get about others is governed LARGELY by how we smell
to each other. MUCH more emphasis on the smell than ANY other feature.
Hard to prove since we know so little about our sense of smell.
