Detection canines have been utilized throughout the world for over a century, and while numerous attempts have been made to replicate the canine’s ability to detect substances by mechanical means, none has been as successful. The olfactory system is a highly intricate and sophisticated design for chemical sensing, and the olfactory capacity of many animals, including canines, is considered unmatched by machine due to not only their great sensitivity and superior selectivity but also their trainability and mobility. Canines: The Original Biosensors assembles a diverse group of authors with expertise in a variety of fields relating to detection canines and the chemical sensing industry, including research and operational perspectives on detection canines. 797 p.
