The book, "Ants and Plants," so severely attacked in a review by Alan N. Andersen in 1996 (Australia Journal of Entomology, vol. 35, p. 200), was applauded, in it's French version, by another Australian, Prof. R. C. Buckley, in Science. The famous English ant specialist, Barry Bolton, also praised the book in his "Identification guide to the ant genera of the World" (1994). The text of both the French and English versions is the same, except the English version included many new hosts plants from Central America and Southeast Asia.
