I am grateful to the government of Ecuador for permission to collect and export tissue and fecal samples as part of my long-term research there, and to M. Franzen, A. Link, K. Phillips, D. Schwindt, and S. Spehar for assistance with those collections. I also appreciate the generosity of colleagues at NYU and else where for providing many of the samples tested in this study, and special thanks are due to the various institutions that were the original sources for some of these samples (Table 1). Finally, Steven Clifford, Todd Disotell, Cliff Jolly, Tony Tosi, and Rob Fleischer made various practical and intellectual contributions to the work, and New York University provided financial support.
