Abstract: "This chapter reviews the experimental literature that has accumulated in the last decade on commons dilemmas and some related situations. It identifies major research topics as well as empirical findings. The review focuses on studies of individual differences, contextual effects, and social structure as non-decision variables. Decision factors include those dealing with uncertainty and knowledge, the decision sequence protocol, and the payoff structure. Inferences are drawn regarding the implications of the results in creating a theory of individual behavior in commons situations."
