Longitudinal, transverse, and perpendicular magnetoresistances were investigated at temperatures 1.2 < T < 300 K in fields of up to 20 T for four ZnO films: one undoped, two with 4% Co (one paramagnetic, the other exhibiting anhysteretic ferromagnetism at room temperature), and one with 25% Co which exhibits hysteretic ferromagnetism, butterfly magnetoresistance, and presence of Co clusters. The magnetoresistance becomes negligibly small above 50-100 K, and magnetic terms are only evident below 20 K, where the mobility is sufficiently high. Quantum oscillations observed below 2 K in the paramagnetic sample with 4% Co give two different extremal Fermi surface cross sections. The data for dilute ferromagnetic samples are consistent with coherent spin transport in a ferromagnetic matrix; data for the x=25% films suggest that spin-polarized electrons can tunnel coherently between well-separated cobalt clusters.
