Excerpt (p. 5):
Biosemiotics is a branch of semiotics that extends the theory of signs to the natural environment and to the relationships between humans and Nature. For biosemioticians, natural systems are composed of signs and codes that represent, communicate, and signify (Tønnesen & Tuur, 2014). Biosemiotics is of interest for this article because it also focuses on how humans perceive and represent the relationships between Nature and Culture and has interestingly challenged traditional theories which used to see the two concepts as separate and even in conflict.
