    First off, I would like to thank everyone that took these awesome pictures of the Macadamia tetraphylla and its hybrid species!  More specifically, I would like to thank Andrew Lowe, Juan Wilson, and Yazmina-Michele de Gaye.  I greatly appreciate all of you for letting me use your pictures.  They all really helped make the website come alive and make it possible to see the structures instead of visualizing everything. 
    In addition, I would like to thank my mom for letting me post her Macadamia cookie recipe (in the Facts section).  Those are possibly my favorite cookie she makes, and I know she really likes to keep her perfected recipes to herself.  I guess she made an exception for her favorite son.
    Also, I would like to thank both of my professors, Dr. Volk and Dr. Sandland.  Without your feedback, constructive criticism, and general guidance this webpage would not be as successful as it is.
    Lastly, I would like to make a general thank you to anyone I missed.  I appreciate everyone's help that it took to take on this project and turn it into what it is.  Everyone that visited the site, thank you and I hope it helped!
