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.

Suchana Chavanich

Dr. Suchana Chavanich received her bachelor degree in Marine Science from Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand. She then further pursued her master degree in Biology at Central Connecticut State University and her Ph.D. in Zoology at University of New Hampshire, USA. Later on, she was also certified as a scuba diving instructor.

Dr. Chavanich has a broad base of ecological research interests that involve the study of nearshore species from tropical to polar regions. In addition, her research focuses on conservation and restoration of marine ecosystems particular on coral reefs. Currently, Dr. Chavanich is also the Project Leader of Coastal Marine Biodiversity and Conservation in the Western Pacific under the UNESCO/IOC Sub-Commission for the Western Pacific.

In Thailand, additional to her research work, Dr. Chavanich is considered to be Thailand’s first female scientist to go to Antarctica and Thailand’s first female scientist to go diving in Antarctica. Her research work on Antarctica has inspired Thai and young people. Thus, in 2013, she was selected to be one of the 100 Most Inspiring People in Thailand, and in 2015 as one of 17 Asia Power Women of Inspiration, selected by Her World Magazine. Because of her work, Dr. Chavanich has received several awards, for example, UNESCO-IOC/WESTPAC Outstanding Scientist Award and UNESCO-L’OREAL For Women in Science Award in Thailand.

Agnes Dettai

Associate professor at the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, Paris. Curator of the fish barcode collection.

I study the systematics and evolution of Actinopterygians, especially at the inter/intra specific boundary and in species delineation with integrative approaches, but also on the evolution of mitogenomes in fish species from the Southern Ocean. I also work on molecular identification (barcoding, metabarcoding) of marine and freshwater fish and benthic species.

María Ángeles Esteban

Professor of Cell Biology in the Cell Biology & Histology Department, Faculty of Biology, Murcia University. She is the head of the research team "Immunobiology for Aquaculture" working on fish species of interest for aquaculture. She has been Vice-chancellor of the University of Murcia and she is the actual director of the Department of Cell Biology & Histology at the University of Murcia.

Jorge MO Fernandes

Professor in Genomics and Molecular Biology. My main research interests are antimicrobial peptides, microRNAs and the epigenetic regulation of myogenic gene networks by environmental factors, such as temperature and photoperiod. ERC grantee with the project EPIFISH: Innovative epigenetic markers for fish domestication. ERC Consolidator Grant, European Research Council (Ref. 683210). Academic editor of PLoS One and Scientific Reports.

Dany Garant

Professor of Ecology in the Department of Biology at Université de Sherbrooke.

Research in my lab aims to understand the processes that generate and maintain biodiversity, mainly through the establishment of evolutionary related parameters in their ecological context. Current research projects in our laboratory involve molecular ecology, quantitative genetics and population dynamics to study wild animal populations.
