Thinking about animals in the age of the Anthropocene by Almo Farina( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The term 'Anthropocene', the era of mankind, is increasingly being used as a scientific designation for the current geological epoch. This is because the human species now dominates ecosystems worldwide, and affects nature in a way that rivals natural forces in magnitude and scale. 'Thinking about Animals in the Age of the Anthropocene' presents a dozen chapters that address the role and place of animals in this epoch characterized by anthropogenic (human-made) environmental change
Animal Umwelten in a changing world : zoosemiotic perspectives by Paul J Thibault( )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book raises semiotic questions of human-animal relations: what is the semiotic character of different species, how humans endow animals with meaning, and how animal sign exchange and communication has coped with environmental change. The book takes a zoosemiotic approach and considers different species as being integrated with the environment via their specific umwelt or subjective perceptual world. The authors elaborate J. v. Uexküll's concept of umwelt to make it applicable for analyzing complex and dynamical interactions between animals, humans, environment and culture. The opening chapters of the book present a framework for philosophical, historical, epistemological and methodological aspects of zoosemiotic research. These initial considerations are followed by specific case studies: on human-animal interactions in zoological gardens, communication in the teams of visually disabled persons and guiding dogs, semiotics of the animal condition in philosophy, historical changes in the role of animals in human households, the semiotics of predation, cultural perception of novel species, and other topics. The authors belong to the research group in zoosemiotics and human-animal relations based in the Department of Semiotics at the University of Tartu in Estonia, and in the University of Stavanger in Norway
