A common observation in the informal literature of economics (and elsewhere) is that in multistage " games, " players may seek early in the game to acquire a reputation for being " tough " or " benevolent " or something else. But this phenomenon is not observed in some formal game-theoretic analyses of finite games, such as Selten's finitely repeated(More)
Species distributional or trait data based on range map (extent-of-occurrence) or atlas survey data often display spatial autocorrelation, i.e. locations close to each other exhibit more similar values than those further apart. If this pattern remains present in the residuals of a statistical model based on such data, one of the key assumptions of standard(More)
A common observation in experiments involving finite repetition of the prisoners' dilemma is that players do not always play the single-period dominant strategies (" finking "), but instead achieve some measure of cooperation. Yet finking at each stage is the only Nash equilibrium in the finitely repeated game. We show here how incomplete information about(More)

An anomalous reduction in forest growth indices and temperature sensitivity has been detected in tree-ring width and density records from many circumpolar northern latitude sites since around the middle 20th century. This phenomenon, also known as the " divergence problem " , is expressed as an offset between warmer instrumental temperatures and their(More)
