Most of this work was done while the author (SFJD) was a graduate student at the University of British Columbia (UBC). SFJD thanks UBC for a two-year University Graduate Fellowship, the Isaac Walton Killam Memorial Trust for a two-year predoctoral fellowship, and the UBC geography department for several teaching assistantships. Doctors Douw Steyn and Dave Whiteman are thanked for their comments on previous versions of the manuscript, and Dr. Fiedler is acknowledged for making TRACT data available to SFJD.
