Socio-ecological systems are complex systems where the interactions between the biophysical dynamics and the social dynamics produce global behaviors that are difficult to understand and to manage. First we shall introduce the notions of complex systems and emergence, showing why these concepts are applicable to socio-ecological systems. Then we shall introduce the various possible approaches to complex system modeling and the particular place of the multi-agent systems in these approaches. The multi-agent approach shall be illustrated thorough an example for companion modeling where various implementations of multi-agent systems are used in interaction with the concerned stakeholders.
