Acknowledgements

Preparation of this status report was funded by the Canadian Wildlife Service, Environment Canada and further supported by the Royal Alberta Museum and University of Calgary. A. Beaudoin provided identifications of seeds collected by kangaroo rats and useful climate information. Recent research by University of Calgary postgraduate students E. Podgurny, S. Robertson, A. Teucher, P. Knaga, E. Baird, and E. Jochum, as well as research assistants M. Ness, M. Pitre, and S. Potvin, contributed significantly to this report. The authors were fortunate to draw pertinent information from ongoing research funded by Canadian Forces Base Suffield, EnCana Corporation, the Alberta Conservation Association, and Alberta Fish and Wildlife Division. Assistance from many additional individuals and agencies (below) was sincerely appreciated.
