We have a long tradition using lab experiments studying social-ecological systems. For past work see https://gamesforsustainability.org/laboratory-experiments/. One of the current studies is in collaboration with Dan deCaro from the University of Louisville. In this NSF funded grant project we will measure how people perceive the process of the experiment with different types of communication in order to derive a better understanding why communication is so effective in avoiding the tragedy of the commons.
