Zoomusicology is an area of intellectual endeavour that developed outside of music studies, among scholars interested in animal behaviour. Although it is almost thirty years old, people operating in ethnomusicology, who are potentially the better equipped to understand the goals and challenges of zoomusicology, are often not aware of how compatible the two fields are. This article makes the point that zoomusicology and ethnomusicology have much to gain from each other. Moreover, if ethnomusicology indeed has the ambition to be a field that brings together musical knowledge into a worldwide perspective, then one would have to maintain that zoomusicology should be seen as part of ethnomusicology.
