1. An adult male and an adult female wood mouse, Apodemus sylvaticus (L.), were trained to discriminate between the odours of individual conspecifics in a 'Y' maze. The odour sources considered were faeces and urine. 2. The experimental mice and those from which the faeces and urine were collected were all born in the wild: the males had scrotal testes and the females were imperforate. 3. The experimental male was successfully trained to discriminate between the faecal odours and between the urine odours of two males. 4. The experimental female was successfully trained to discriminate both between the urines of a male and a female and between their faeces, and between both the urines and faeces of two females.
