implementing solid phase microextraction (spme) as a tool to detect volatile compounds produced by giant pandas in the environment.chemical cues are thought to play an important role in mate identification in the solitary giant panda (ailuropoda melanoleuca). the goal of this study was to detect and identify volatile compounds present in the enclosure air of captive giant pandas. we hypothesized that a subset of compounds produced from breeding animals would be detected in environmental samples because highly volatile chemicals are likely to facilitate mate detection. samples were collected from the enclosures of 8 giant pa ...201830566455
