Knowledge Representation

As with any other knowledge-based approach, building a compositional modeller requires a formalism for the specification of its inputs, its outputs and its knowledge base. The work developed here is loosely based on the compositional modelling language [3], a proposed standard knowledge representation formalism for compositional modellers, but adapted to meet the challenges of the ecological compositional modelling problems identified in the introduction.
