The three basic problems of constructing and using models are the definition of the system, their parts, and the interactions among them. There is not a single kind of model or method to construct it: the structure, the construction, and the achievements of each model closely depend on the problem to be solved with it. As an example, this paper details the different steps followed to construct a model, used with educational purposes, which predicts the biomass dynamics of the steppe of SW Chubut, Argentina, and its variability in response to environmental conditions. Some discrepancies between the results of the model and knowledge of the ecosystem are discussed, and it is shown how some of the basic assumptions must be reformulated. -from English summary
