    5. Evolution and comparison of olfaction across species
    Shyam Srinivasan
    Animals have evolved diverse strategies in adapting to their environment. Differences in olfactory systems are evident in terms of anatomy, physiology, and ecology. I came across a few papers (by no means exhaustive) on evolution and comparative studies of olfaction across species which may be of interest. This list does not include much comparative behavior, which would be helpful to link structure and function. Please feel free to update this list.
    A review on the comparison of four features of olfactory systems across species:

    A paper on the evolution of vertebrate olfactory subsystems (main and vomorenasal) and includes comparisons across fish, reptiles, amphibians, and mammals:
    https://www.msu.edu/user/eisthen/lab/pubs/ENS2006.pdf
    A comparison of olfactory receptors across different clades and some perspectives on receptor evolution:
    http://www.nature.com/nrg/journal/v9/n12/abs/nrg2480.html
    The number of ORs in elephants and other placental mammals:

    Nice review on the neuroethology of insect olfaction:

    Conserved features of olfaction across species:

    Commonalities and differences between the olfactory systems of vertebrates and insects:
    http://www.nature.com/nrn/journal/v11/n3/full/nrn2789.html
    An interesting paper comparing the evolution of diverse sensory systems in species and the trade offs between these senses:

    Odor space in terms of thermo-chemio-physical properties ?
    ...
    cf. A. KoulakovKulakov talk
    Metrics: cf. Chakra Chennubhotla
    Do we need odor space at all or is a non-metric set of properties enough ?
