I would like to thank Dr. Dorcas for helping me with image fitting and folder management, all of the people who allowed me to use their pictures: Tome Stevenson, Mark Cassino, and Ken Fox. Dr. Peg Halloran for having a highly readable squirrel almanac, Nate for scanning and general wisdom and sanity, the lab group who got through this together with dance music, my roommate for forgiving me for missing her win the southern conference tournament so I could work on this, and my Mom and Dad who sent me e-mail during the work to keep me happy. And the union for the cookies.
