We are especially thankful to all the institutions that participated in the sample collection: UP-MRI and State Vets (D. Cooper, Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park), Centre de Coopération Internationale en Recherche Agronomique pour le Développement (CIRAD) partners based in Botswana, CIRAD and RP-PCP partners based in Zimbabwe, and the Fondation Internationale pour la Gestion de la Faune (IGF, France). We would also like to thank S. Le Bel, C. Foggin, R. Bengis, M. Hofmeyr, N. Owen-Smith and A. Marchal for providing supplementary specific information about buffalo demographic parameters. Furthermore, we would like to thank Pim Van Hooft (University of Wageningen, The Netherlands) for his deep knowledge and support in reconstructing the male haplogroup network.
This study was supported by research grants from the Belgian Fond National pour la Recherche Scientifique (FRS-FNRS) provided to J.R. Michaux (A5/ 5-MCF/BIC-11561) and N.M.R. Smitz (F3/5/5-MCF/ROI/BC-20.003) (http://www1.frs-fnrs.be/). N. Smitz and other RP-PCP partners were supported by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs (RP-PCP grants 2011–2013 and FSP-RenCaRe). Many thanks also to the South African Veterinary Foundation for a small grant awarded to K.L. Kanapeckas toward the disease genetics research on African buffalo presented herein.
