The understanding of processes of self-organization concerning living systems requires today a systemic and interdisciplinary approach. Taking our moves from recent studies within the framework of an extended theory of complexity, the present work is devoted to consider the phenomena of the coupled processing and transformation of information in biological systems, highlighting the need to identify new measures of complexity (new axiomatic systems) with regard to the study of the mechanisms of natural information transmission.
