  • The work here was completed under a Perry Summer Research grant from Whitman College. We are grateful to the donors that support this important program without which this work would not have been possible.
  • We would also like to thank Amy Molitor, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies, for her invaluable help in obtaining population and map data from the ArcGIS software package.
