First and foremost, I'd like to thank Richard Hebda for sustaining support and enthusiasm throughout! Many people at the Royal BC Museum contributed in small and large ways to making this possible, including Jim Cosgrove, Brian Apland, Elizabeth Taylor and others mentioned below.
Initial support and review
Many people provided valuable suggestions during the initial stages including Derek Marcoux, Selkirk College Instructor, Moira Greaven, Wetlands Institute Facilitator, and Don Gayton, Range Ecologist.
