Acknowledgments On Mammals

We thank Matt Ravosa and Marian Dagosto for inviting us to participate in the Primate Origins Conference, and in this volume. This research was supported by a grant from NSF Physical Anthropology to C.F. Ross (SBR 9706676) and a grant from the L.S.B. Leakey Foundation to C.P. Heesy. Mark Coleman alerted us to important papers documenting the relationship between auditory and visual acuity, and read and provided comments on the manuscript.
