The problem of uncertainty often appear in modelling of ecosystems, in particular uncertainty of data and even uncertainty in relations between system components. To solve these problems and the problems of subjectivity in evalation of ecological paramaters a fuzzy logic approach has been proposed. The paper shows some first results obtained by investigation into this problems.
