We acknowledge the help of colleagues and collaborators who have been essential to the project and the completion of this report, in particular G. Anderson, statistician at the Faculty of Veterinary Science, The University of Melbourne, for assistance with the statistics, J. Gould from Portland Aluminium for the bone fluoride analyses on a large number of samples and R. Jeffreys from Portland Aluminium for the collection of kangaroos, both at Portland and Cape Bridgewater. B. Augusteyn generously provided us age estimates based on lens protein density. Finally, we acknowledge the financial, operational and analytical (bone fluoride analysis) support from Portland Aluminium, Alcoa.
