I thank Don Rasmussen and A. D. Bamosky for the invitation to participate in the Porcupine Cave project. I am grateful to Don and Jerry Rasmussen for the benefit of many conversations about wood rats and the history of caves in South Park, and for their guidance both inside the cave and in the surrounding hills. I thank Donna Shay for help in collecting and preparing mammal specimens, and for improvements made to a draft of this chapter. Reviews of this chapter by A. D. Barnosky, Don Rasmussen, Tom Van Devender, and an anonymous reviewer did much to improve it. E. A. Hadly provided a reprint of her 1999 paper on Lamar Cave.
