The effects of pollution on organism signaling and human health
Yogi Hale Hendlin
Environmental Philosopher and Political Theorist - UCSF Department of Medicine
While environmental conservation is typically framed in terms of ensuring a livable future planet for humans, less frequently invoked but equally pertinent is the way in which anthropogenic environmental disruptions cripple the abilities of species to navigate and make sense of their habitat. The nascent science of biosemiotics—the semiotics of nonhuman organisms—focuses on how organisms make meaning from their environmental stimuli and the signals of conspecifics as well as interspecifics.
