We study how nature shapes preferences and incentives of economic agents and how this in turn affects common-pool resource management. To this end, we develop instructive theoretical models and validate these by data analysis and economic experiments in the field (fisheries in Norway, Chile, and Tanzania). Our reseach takes both the ecological and social context into account, studying questions related to resource stock uncertainty, labor flexibility, social norms, and more.
