I told my colleagues that PeerJ is a journal where they need to publish if they want their paper to be published quickly and with the strict peer review expected from a good journal.

Nigel R Andrew

My current research interests focus on the impacts that climate change will have on insect behaviour, ecology and physiology; insect community structure along environmental gradients; and insect-plant interactions.
I am currently Editor-in-Chief of Austral Ecology.

Gunjan Arora

I am currently working as Asscociate research scientist at Yale University. Previously I worked as Postdoctoral fellow at National Institutes of Health, USA. My current work is on infectious diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis, Lyme, Anthrax. In my project, I study immune correlates of protection to malaria. I have about 10 years of post-PhD experience in Global health, Immunology and Microbiology. I did my PhD from CSIR-Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology, Delhi, India working on bacterial pathogens M. tuberculosis and other gram-positive bacterial pathogens. I worked as Vaccine Research Innovation awardee at Translational Health Science and Technology Institute in India.

I have 26 publications in International peer-reviewed journals and have published 4 Book chapters. My current h-index is 18. In the recent past, I have served as reviewer for Frontiers Journal, MDPI journals, Nature press journals, Medicine, Pathogen and vectors, BMC Microbiology, Archives of Microbiology, Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, and Indian Journal of Microbiology.

Jason E Bond

Professor and Evert and Marion Schlinger Chair in Insect Systematics. Primary area of specialty is evolutionary diversification of terrestrial arthropods with an emphasis in spider systematics and taxonomy. Other interests include diplopod and tenebrionid beetle systematics, taxonomy, and speciation pattern/process.

Yann Clough

Yann Clough is Professor for Environmental Science at the Centre for Environmental and Climate research (CEC), Lund University. His research addresses the drivers of biodiversity in human-dominated landscapes, and the impact of biodiversity on ecosystem services. His approach combines landscape-scale empirical studies of biodiversity and functions of arthropods and birds in crops, statistical and mechanistic, spatially-explicit modelling of arthropod-based ecosystem services, and interdisciplinary approaches to link policy, land-use change and environmental effects.

Sheila R Colla

Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Environmental Studies at York University.

Teaching and Research subjects include protected areas management, species at-risk, ecology, environmental management.

Jonathan F. Colville

I am interested in the distribution and diversity patterns of insects and the reasons underlying observed patterns. I study both point diversity and compositional differences in insect and plant community patterns and relate these to ecological and evolutionary processes. I am also interested in the evolution of exaggerated traits in insects, such as those traits associated with sexual selection. The functional morphology of insect mouthparts, particularly of insect pollinators, are a further area of interest, as is the systematics and taxonomy of beetles (Scarabaeidae).

G. Christopher Cutler

Professor and Associate Dean Research, Dalhousie University

Interests in Agricultural Entomology and Ecotoxicology

Nicolas Desneux

Research Director at INRA, France. Main expertise is in the fields of Ecology, Community ecology, ecotoxicology and IPM

Scott Emrich

I received a BS in Biology and Computer Science from Loyola College in Maryland and a PhD in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology from Iowa State University (ISU). Upon graduation, I received a ISU Research Excellence award and the university-wide Zaffrano Prize for Graduate Research. Starting after graduation in 2007 I spent the first ten years of my career at the University of Notre Dame, and now am an Associate Professor at the University of Tennessee (Knoxville). My research interests include genome-focused bioinformatics, parallel and distributed computing, and the intersection of biological applications and second and third-gen sequencing. Nearly all of my research has been funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH).

Jay D Evans

Lead Scientist for the US Dept. Agriculture Bee Research Laboratory. Recipient of 2011 Hambleton Award for Bee Research and 2002 ARS Early Career Scientist-BA Award, member i5k Insect Genome Planning Committee.

Scott Ferrenberg

I am a terrestrial population, community, and ecosystem ecologist interested in understanding how global change pressures influence biotic populations and community states, and how potential shifts in trait and/or species distributions will affect ecological functioning in arid, semiarid, and subalpine ecosystems. I am currently an assistant professor in the Department of Biology at New Mexico State University where I am the PI of the Global Change Ecology Lab (GCEL).
