Alex Wild has very nicely commented on this website at - It is nice to feel "indispensable", or at least to know one's efforts do work for others.

Dr Kate Parr, School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford - - "I am currently working on some (ants) from Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Game Reserve in South Africa. I made some exciting finds including an Amblyopone species. I have been using your website a fair bit which has been very helpful". 27 August 2009

Dr. Marcell Peters, Zoologisches Forschungsmuseum A. Koenig, BIOTA East Africa, Adenauerallee 160, 53113 Bonn, Germany: "Many thanks for your nice website on African ants. We (our working group) are using it very often and greatly acknowledge the information presented there." 2 September 2009

Dr Brigitte M. Braschler, DST-NRF Centre of Excellence for Invasion Biology, Department of Botany and Zoology, Stellenbosch University, Private Bag X1, Matieland 7602, South Africa - "I am a great fan of your website and very much appreciate the effort you have made with the inclusion of original descriptions, distribution records, and photographs. I often recommend the website to new research students here. There are currently a number of students here doing work with ants. Often their projects have to do with Argentine ants as this is the Centre for Invasion Biology, but also more general biodiversity work is done." 29 April 2009.

Amy Wade, PhD student, Department of Agriculture, University of Reading, UK - currently using the site for identification of ants from Ghanaian cocoa.
Heather Campbell, PhD student, School of Biological Sciences, University of Reading, UK - currently using the site for identification of ants involved in savannah ant-Acacia mutualisms in Africa.
