The land manager model: output of a run in which there was a phosphorus outbreak within the first 50 years (outer loop), followed by >350 years of sustainable management with repeated explorations of the stability domain. Through the period of exploration, the game player frequently adjusted the target phosphorus level, causing shifts in the proportion of phosphorus-intensive farms and yielding new information about the responsiveness of the system to perturbations.
