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.

Bruce S Lieberman

Dr. Bruce Lieberman is a paleontologist and evolutionary biologist interested in macroevolution and the evolutionary history of invertebrates.

Charlotte Lindqvist

Assistant Professor, Department of Biological Sciences, University at Buffalo 2010-present; Postdoctoral Fellow/Research Associate, University of Oslo 2003-2008; PhD, University of Copenhagen 2003.

Raquel López-Antoñanzas

Raquel López-Antoñanzas is a CNRS researcher at the Institut des sciences de l'évolution (University of Montpellier). In 2004, she received her PhD from the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle in Paris (France). She works on the evolution of micromammals with a special focus on those from the Cenozoic of the Old World.

Claudia A Marsicano

Professor of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoecology at the University of Buenos Aires, Associate Curator Vertebrate Paleontology Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales (UBA), Principal Researcher Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (CONICET), Past Editor-in-Chief Ameghiniana.

Santiago Martín-Bravo

I am an Associate Professor and researcher at Botany Area of the Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemical Engineering at Pablo de Olavide University (Seville, Spain). I am a botanist but I also like to define myself as an evolutionary biologist. My final objective is to contribute to the knowledge and conservation of the biodiversity that surrounds us. My main research interests are on systematics and evolution of angiosperms. I try to answer questions related with the topics of when, how and why are species (and in general biodiversity) generated. I am also very interested in biogeography, this is, explaining the processes causing the distribution of species. To accomplish these task, I use multidisciplinar approaches ranging from classic taxonomy to molecular phylogenetics, estimation of divergence times, cytogenetic evolution, phylo- and biogeographic analyses. Finally, I am also interested in conservation biology, particularly in relation with conservation genetics. I am also the curator of UPOS herbarium

Ian R McDonald

BSc (Hons) University of Ulster, PhD Liverpool University. Postdoc and NERC Advanced Research Fellow at Warwick University. I have been at the University of Waikato since 2004 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2010. My research has focused on the microbial ecology of methane oxidation, Antarctica and geothermal environments in New Zealand. In Antarctica we are studying the drivers of microbial diversity in Dry Valley soils, geothermal environments (Mts Erebus, Melbourne and Rittmann), and terrestrial meltwater ponds. Currently ‘The 1000 Spring project’ is determining drivers of microbial diversity in NZ geothermal environments. I have organized several NZ and international conferences, am on the LOC for PAM 2019 in Hamilton. I am on the editorial board for ISMEJ.

Juan J. Morrone

Full professor of Biogeography, Systematics and Comparative Biology at the Facultad de Ciencias, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), Mexico. He works on phylogenetic systematics of weevils (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) and evolutionary biogeography and regionalization of the Neotropical and Andean regions.
