Abstract
A formal concept of a general developmental system is proposed in order to investigate the impact of an external information supplied to the developmental system from the environment on the complexity of developed objects. Genetic algorithm is utilized to design a developmental system (based on the formal model) that is able to generate as complex objects (strings) as possible. Dependence of the developed string complexity on the various properties of the developmental system and environment is investigated. The conducted experiments show that the complexity of target objects depends more on the information comming from environment than on the information included in the genotype.
