All models have in common that they encode experience and always involve signs, signals, syntax, semantics and an ability to decode and derive meaning from what is encoded. Therefore, an ecological model can be considered a text T, written in a formal (mathematical) language defined by the authors as L(MT).
The language chosen is a regular language generated by regular grammars which in turn are generated by finite automaton.
A text results from a union of some finite automata defining a textual grammar. Recognoscitive and generative grammars of words, defining the basis of the L(MT) language are developed.
A mathematical modelling of ecological systems is developed in parts I and II of this research project.
A language for ecological systems modelling has been defined and its implementation discussed.
