Phylogeography of California
University of California Press

I am honored to have had many fine mentors who have nurtured my passion for evolution, ecology, conservation, and the biological diversity of California. In no particular order these friends and mentors include George Corson, Doug Alexander, J. P. Smith, Bob Patterson, Ledyard Stebbins, Richard Mack, Rebecca Sharitz, Steve Edwards, Frank McKnight, Howard Latimer, Norm Ellstrand, Phyllis Faber, Jim Hamrick, Colin Hughes, Roger Lederer, and Wilma Follette. The friendships of Lily and Kader Aïnouche, Carla D'Antonio, Debra Ayres, Sue Jensen-Pollard, Kate McDonald, Charli Danielsen, Barbara Leitner, Deborah Jensen, Laura Morelli, Ann Bernadette, Chris Lozano, Marilyn Tierney, Tim Messick, Adrienne Edwards, Dawn Wilson, Doug Kain, Cindy Phelps, Ray Carruthers, Ellen Clark and the Third Avenue and Bunco gangs have benefited me greatly at various points in my life and in one way or another helped me to finish this book. Nothing I do would be possible without the unending support of my husband, Jim Eckert. Thanks go to my many family members for supporting my academic endeavors but especially Mary Huff and Nellie Huff, without whom I would have not been able to attend college. William G. Huff instilled in me an appreciation for California's rich history at a young age and provides some of the (p.xi) illustrations here. I thank the many enthusiastic and insightful students with whom I have been fortunate to interact over the past twenty years but particularly the dedicated graduate students; all have enriched my life and understanding of the biology of California.

Special thanks to those brave souls who provided comments on earlier versions of this work: Jay Bogiatto, Don Miller, Bruce Baldwin, Karen Burow, Andy Simpson, and especially John Avise, Peter Raven, and Arthur Shapiro. Chuck Crumly and Blake Edgar provided encouragement to complete this project and are much appreciated. California State University, Chico provided support to complete this work via a sabbatical.
