Section Editor rating: 8 / 10James Reimer –– Nice work examining variation in coral mucous production across days and seasons.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Per Palsboll –– The work informs people with an in the Arctic Ocean and climate change
Editor rating: 7 / 10Hauke Smidt –– Valuable contribution to the field of shrimp microbiota research
Section Editor rating: 8 / 10James Reimer –– Examination of an under-studied group of annelids with molecular phylogeny that proposes a clear way forward to resolve their taxonomy.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Anastazia Banaszak –– This publication provides basic but important evidence on the distribution of three species that have similar morphologies and are commonly misidentified.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Carlos Conte-Junior –– This article is relevant in the area of the fish consumer. There are few studies about the nutritional value of different fishes with the potential to produce in the word.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Albert Gabric –– The work on coralline responses to CC impacts such as acidification is weighted towards tropical ecosystems. This paper provides a useful counterbalance in the literature and as Dr Buscher has noted provides a window on the future of all coralline ecoystems.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Antonina Dos Santos –– As I say in the decision letter, it is important for any ecological studies in the region s.l. and also for taxonomy studies around the world. It has the quality of describing a new species using integrative taxonomy.
Editor rating: 8 / 10James Reimer –– Scientific work examining the efficacy of shark deterrents - this work is sure to catch the attention of a wide range of people both in marine biology and the general public.
Editor rating: 7 / 10John Berges –– This is an important demonstration that we can reconcile synoptic measurements (e.g. satellite measurements of ocean color) with local and microscale measurements of individual phytoplankton species (an autonomous vehicles and digital holography).
