Port Lameron Lobster Fishery II, Nova Scotia, Canada

Case
Since this original case, much of the Atlantic Canadian fisheries have been reduced to a fraction of historical levels. In Port Lameron, very few harvesters fish for groundfish (cod, haddock, pollock, hake), swordfish, or tuna. The collapse of the Codfishery has been attributed to many issues, including scientific uncertainty, government policies to increase employment in the area, and subsidies to increase fishing capacity, and the inability of enforcement to stop foreign trawlers from...

Rural coastal fishing community, south of Mombasa, Kenya

Case
The fishing community contained in this case study is located approximately 50 km south of the city of Mombasa on the coast of Kenya, outside of the Diani/Chale National Marine Park and Reserve. The village has an estimated 1000 inhabitants in approximately 200 households. Approximately 44% of the households in the community are directly involved in fishery extraction and the community is considered economically dependent on the marine fishery. The original case study authors focused on social...

Rural sokshing, Bhutan (I)

Case
Following the introduction of the Forest Act of 1969 and the Forest and Nature Conservation Act of 1995, the forests of Bhutan are owned and managed by the state, and are legally classified as "Government Reserve Forest". One of two major forest-related indigenous land-use strategies is sokshing [registered leaf litter forests] that is defined as "a part of the Government Reserve Forest registered in the name of an individual and maintained aside for collection for leaf litters required for...

Sabi Sand Game Preserve, South Africa

Case
This case was part of a study to determine whether the institutional design principles of Ostrom were, in fact, related to "governance success" by Cox et al.  In that analysis, this case was classified as a success.

Shellfish, Wadden Sea, The Netherlands

Case
The Wadden Sea is a network of tidal channels, sandbars, mudflats, salt marshes and dune islands covering approximately 9000 km2 located at the northwest corner of the Netherlands along the North Sea and extending east along the coast of Germany and then north to Esbjerg in Denmark. The Wadden Sea is considered Europe’s largest wetland ecosystem and is also one of the largest in the world, providing high biomass production and habitat for birds, sea mammals, fish species and shellfish. The...

Simple Model of Farming/Gathering Transition

Model
This is a stylised model capturing "the interdependencies of foraging, farming and productivity of an ecosystem" and can be used to "explore alternative scenarios of niche construction and ecological inheritance." The model has two components, forest growth and time allocated to either foraging or farming, coupled together. Three basic model assumptions are 1) individuals are households, 2) households choose to produce either tree seeds or maize and 3) territory is open access. Allocation of...

Siran Ko Kulo (a), Thamalangtar Dhap Village Panchayat, Sindhupalchok District, Nepal

Case
This case is part of the original Nepal Irrigation Institutions and Systems (NIIS) database developed in the 1980's by a team of researchers under the direction of Dr. Elinor Ostrom at Indiana University. In addition, this case is also part of a longitudinal study that has repeatedly investigated 19 farmer-managed irrigation systems (FMIS) in the Indrawati River Basin that participated in an innovative intervention designed to improve irrigation performance not only by improving physical...

Social Ostracism and Resource Management

Model
This replicator dynamics model considers the case of a common-pool resource system where social ostracism may be used to compel non-complying harvesters to avoid over-exploitation of the resource base. Here, non-compliant harvesters (i.e., defectors) are identified by their payoff strategy and incur an 'ostracism' penalty proportional to the number of compliant harvesters (i.e., co-operators) in the system. When the ostracism effect is equivalent to the number of compliant harvesters and the...

Spread of ideas based on epidemiological models

Model
Models inspired by epidemiology and informed by the sociology of the spread dynamics, are applied to the diffusion of a specific scientific idea. Although the example will clearly not cover everyclass of ideas, it will point to features of epidemic models that apply to idea diffusion. It will alsoreveal features of these models that require modification, thereby producing more realistic candidate models.At the onset of the spread of the idea, most of the population will be in the susceptible...
