We benefited from the generous help of Pat Matyot, Gérard Rocamora, and Gaëtan Galman of Island Conservation Society; Justin Gerlach from the Nature Protection Trust of Seychelles, Silhouette; Lindsay Chong-Seng and Nancy Bunbury of the Seychelles Islands Foundation (SIF) in Vallée de Mai and Aldabra; and many locals who offered their expertise, guidance, and companionship on our visit to each of the islands. We thank the Bureau of Standards, Mr. Rodney Quatre of the National Park Authority, and Denis Matatiken and Ronley Fanchette Ministry of Environment for delivering authorizations for the capture, collection and exportation of ants in Seychelles.
