OVERVIEW OF COLLABORATION AND SUPPORT
This project was undertaken with the support of the DOE and McKenna Foundation. The
principal investigator was Joseph H. Hartman. Besides the work of the principal investigator,
Barry Roth of the University of California-Berkeley contributed to the research on the terrestrial
mollusks of the Bighorn Basin and is coauthor on one paper (Hartman and Roth, in press) and
senior author on another (Roth and Hartman, submitted); Allen J. Kihm contributed to the research
on the mammals of the North Dakota portion of the Williston Basin and is coauthor on one paper
(Hartman and Kihm, 1996) and senior author on others (Kihm and Hartman, submitted; in
preparation). Others contributed their knowledge, resources, and/or facilities to aid in this research
project: P.M. Gingerich and G.F. Gunnell (University of Michigan); T.J. Kroeger (Bemidji State
University); S.P. Lund (University of Southern California), P.J. Morris (Amherst College);
M.C. McKenna (American Museum of Natural History); W.A. Clemens, Jr., and P. Holryod

of the University of Rhode Island; C.A. Edwards (U.S. Geological Survey); J.W.M. Thompson
(Department of Paleobiology, U.S. National Museum of Natural History), and F.J. Collier
(Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University). An earlier phase of the project included
the valuable field and/or laboratory assistance of the following students employed by J.H. Hartman
at the EERC: T.J. Kroeger (graduated), W.D. Peck (graduated; now EERC staff), M.R. Rolland,
and D.E. Heinen. Generous access to property, hospitality, and directions to fossil localities
locally known were given by Lyle and Darlene Nelson (Fort Peck, Montana) and John and Sylvia
Trumbo and their son Mike (Jordan, Montana). Permission to access private property throughout
the study area is gratefully acknowledged. Thanks are also given for the cooperation extended by
W.J. Berg of the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge.
