EcoTRADE - A multi-player network game of a tradable permit market for biodiversity credits. (link)
Hartig, F., Horn, M. & Drechsler, M.
Environmental Modelling & Software 2009
Abstract: EcoTRADE is a multi-player network game of a virtual biodiversity credit market. Each player controls the land use of a certain amount of parcels on a virtual landscape. The biodiversity credits of a particular parcel depend on neighboring parcels, which may be owned by other players. The game can be used to study the strategies of players in experiments or classroom games and as a communication tool for stakeholders participating in credit markets that include spatially interdependent credits.
