Contents:
Introduction : metaphysical and postmetaphysical relationships of humans with nature and life -- Plant communication -- Communicative competences of honey-bees -- Biocommunication of corals -- Biocommunication of fungal organisms -- Bacteria communication -- Natural genome editing competences of viruses and virus-like agents -- How bacteria escaped selection pressure of the early RNA-world -- Viral origins of telomeres and telomerases -- Real life-world of noncoding RNA-species -- Outlook.
Summary: This is the first uniform description of all key levels of communication in the organismic kingdoms of plants, fungi, animals and bacteria based on the most recent empirical data. Biocommunication occurs on three levels (A) intraorganismic, i.e. intra- and intercellular, (B) interorganismic, between the same or related species and (C) transorganismic, between organisms which are not related. The biocommunicative approach demonstrates both that cells, tissues, organs and organisms coordinate and organize by communication processes and genetic nucleotide sequence order in cellular and non-cellul
