In this Review, there is an error in Fig. 1b, in which the carboxyl group of diffusible signalling factor methyl dodecenoic acid (compound number 6) was inadvertently omitted. The original figure has been corrected online. In addition, the chemical name of this compound has been changed from ‘methyl dodecenoic acid’ to ‘11-methyl-cis-dodecenoic acid’ in the legend to Fig. 1b. The Supplementary Information to this Corrigendum contains the original Fig. 1b, for transparency. The authors thank the reader for bringing these errors to their attention, and apologise for any confusion caused.
