In recent work it has been shown that, given the presence of a community structure in a population of agents, cooperation can be a robust outcome for agents participating in an N-player social dilemma. Through the use of simple imitative learning, cooperation can spread and be the dominant robust behaviour. In this paper, we show that such cooperation can exist in the presence of noise and that persistent small levels of noise can allow the population to adapt suitably to dramatic changes in the environment.
