Abstract:

This book is addressed to students, researchers and academics who have
barely heard of the emerging young science of Biosemiotics, and who want to
know more about it. Written by many of the field's major contributors, it
provides a highly qualified introduction to Biosemiotics and illustrates
the most recent views in its background and development.

Combining research approaches from biology, philosophy and linguistics, the
field of Biosemiotics proposes that animals, plants and single cells all
engage in semiosis - the conversion of objective signals into conventional
signs. This has important implications and applications for issues ranging
from natural selection to animal behavior and human psychology, leaving
biosemiotics at the cutting edge of the research on the fundamentals of life.

Drawing on an international expertise, the book details the history and
study of biosemiotics, and provides a state-of-the-art summary of the
current work in this new field. And, with relevance to a wide range of
disciplines - from linguistics and semiotics to evolutionary phenomena and
the philosophy of biology - the book provides an important text for both
students and established researchers, while marking a vital step in the
evolution of a new biological paradigm.
