Acknowledgments

As I look back on the adventure, it seems remarkable how many people played an important role in making this trip possible.
Importantly, I want to thank the students who participated in the prefield and field seminar -
and also to those who participated in the field seminar but were not able to travel with us to Africa.
I am most grateful to Yosefa and Morgan and the entire team at BOSP who implemented and funded the experience, and who provided immense resources, as well as logistical and moral supporting at all phases of the experience from planning to to execution to follow-up.

I am particularly indebted to the on-the-ground team in Namibia: Willem, Maha, Hini, and Forrest!

Following the trip, I would like to thank Alex Dreyer and Chiinga Siavwapa for their help with species identifications.
