The scientific study of biocommunication as a subfield of semiotics has been introduced by Thomas A. Sebeok, and currently developed by the International Society for Biosemiotic Studies although they never used the term biocommunication.

In the study of linguistics, abstract biocommunication theory may be considered to be a form of biosemiotics, and a subdiscipline of semiotic theory. Accordingly, syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic aspects of biocommunication processes are distinguished.[8] Biocommunication specific to animals (animal communication) is considered a branch of zoosemiotics.[9] The semiotic study of molecular genetics, can be considered a study of biocommunication at its most basic level.[10]
