This paper was originally presented at the 30th Old Herborn University Seminar in June 2016. Because some of the data presented at that meeting was unpublished, the print version of the presentation was embargoed until those data were published or accepted for publication in peer-reviewed journals. As of June of 2018, that has been accomplished. As a result, this article has been updated so as to include that data and current literature citations.
