Acknowledgements: We are indebted to the people of Yanes III, Puerto Rico; Village 6 Hua Sam Rong; and the villages of Pai Lom, Lao Bao, and Mae Kasa, Mae Sot, Thailand, for allowing us to work in their homes and their support, cooperation, and assistance with this study. We thank Dr. W. Swaddigwongporni and Dr. J. Pradit and all of the members of the Community Health Program at Mae Sot Hospital, Pirom Sangsuab at Hua Sam Rong Health Center, and Boonruang Yakeaw at Mae Pa Health Center for their support. From AFRIMS in Bangkok, Somporn Changimongkol, Alongkot Ponlawat, Warisa Tangjinjai, Siriporn Mungviriya, and Patcharee Khongtak assisted with the Thai field studies. Health volunteers Porapol Meungcheun and Lan Chummoi assisted with releases. Benjamas Pongnapakul assisted as a driver. Somboon Intawong, Pornchai Harujai, Aun Manowong, Chaiwut Lerchai, Somboon Kantang, Manit Chaiya, Chatree Chumpen, and Boonkuea Malisor assisted with collections in the Mae Sot region. Somboon Srimarat, Kitti Theinthong, and Samnieng Theinthong assisted with research and collections in the Hua Sam Rong region. We also thank Daniel Strickman for the Hua Sam Rong Village 6 map and Elizabeth Kurrle for creating the Mae Sot region maps.
