"This idiot Grasse, P.-P. " has been described as:

The most distinguished of French Zoologists, the editor of the 28 volumes of
Traite de Zoologie, author of numerous original investigations and ex-president
of the Academie des Sciences. His knowledge of the living world is
encyclopedic.

-- T. Dodzhansky, in a review of the first (French) edition of Grasse's book.
Evolution, 29(2), June 1975 p376.
