ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
The late Dr. R. Tucker Abbott was the first to encourage me to work on non-marine mollusks. Following his advice has opened up a whole new world waiting to be discovered. Mr. Steve Ahlstedt of the U. S. Geological Survey offered encouragement and loaned me books to help me learn the taxonomy of terrestrial snails. The following people provided field support: Jim Godwin, Alabama Natural Heritage Program; Louis Levine-Fields, Cumberland Science Museum, Nashville, Tennessee; Stuart McGregor, Geological Survey of Alabama; Frankin Pritchett of Hollywood, Alabama; Ashley Shelton, Carrie Shelton, Jonathan Shelton, and Matthew Shelton of Mobile, Alabama; Jason Shelton of Pisgah, Alabama; and David I. Withers, Tennessee Natural Heritage Program.
