Zoosemiotics is the study of meaning-making (semiosis) within and between species. It is a subset of biosemiotics, which generally concerns the process of meaning-making in life. The seminal semiotician Kalevi Kull described zoosemiotics as "the study of animal forms of knowing."

History[edit | edit source]

Zoosemiotics was first developed by the American linguist Thomas Sebeok (1920-2001) in 1963.
