2017 Journal of Biosemiotics Achievement Award


The International Society for Biosemiotic Studies and the journal of Biosemiotics (Springer) are pleased to announce the winner of the 2017 Biosemiotics Achievement Award.

The awardees’ paper, “The Acoustic Habitat Hypothesis: An Ecoacoustics Perspective on Species Habitat Selection” (December 2017, Volume 10, Issue 3, pp 319–336) by authors Timothy C. Mullet, Almo Farina, and Stuart H. Gage, creatively deploys ecoacoustics to theorize biosemiotically “how the acoustic environment influences habitat selection of sound-dependent species,” with implications for conservation ecology.
