Moving to 3D: relationships between coral planar area, surface area and volume

Editor rating: 8 / 10

Ronaldo Francini-Filho –– Tech tools for coral reef research are emerging fast and boosting science
Molecular phylogenetics of swimming crabs (Portunoidea Rafinesque, 1815) supports a revised family-level classification and suggests a single derived origin of symbiotic taxa

Editor rating: 9 / 10

Mohammad Shamsur Rahman –– very much fantastic work in the field of taxonomy, both in classical and molecular approach!
The old and the new plankton: ecological replacement of associations of mollusc plankton and giant filter feeders after the Cretaceous?

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Kenneth De Baets –– The manuscript reviews the potential replacement of associations of mollusc plankton and giant filter feeders from the Mesozoic to the modern. It will therefore be of interest to biologists, ecologists and paleontologists.
Shift of symbiont communities in Acropora tenuis juveniles under heat stress

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Joseph Gillespie –– This is important work on a small scale, pertaining to the biology of these corals. But it is further ecological significance, and thus will be of interest to marine biologists ecologists and environmental scientists.
Epigenetic considerations in aquaculture

Editor rating: 8 / 10

Mohammad Shamsur Rahman –– New approach to improve aquaculture production!
Age-based and reproductive biology of the Pacific Longnose Parrotfish Hipposcarus longiceps from Guam

Editor rating: 7 / 10

James Reimer –– A thorough assessment of the growth patterns and reproductive biology of a commercially important parrotfish species.
Coral-associated viral communities show high levels of diversity and host auxiliary functions

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Fabiano Thompson –– addresses virus diversity in reef systems, and roles in genome plasticity.
Composition, diversity and function of intestinal microbiota in pacific white shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) at different culture stages

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Mohammad Shamsur Rahman –– in my opinion, it is very important to know the composition of gut microbiota in different culture stages to know the microbial health status and make plan to control any future disease outbreak!
Diversity of fish sound types in the Pearl River Estuary, China

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Magnus Johnson –– This paper lays the foundations for the use of fish sounds as a way of monitoring a divers ecological assemblage.
A massive update of non-indigenous species records in Mediterranean marinas

Editor rating: 9 / 10

Mark Costello –– Due to the Suez Canal, the Mediterranean has more introduced species than any other sea area. However, there are often misidentifications and species suggested as "invasive" which are not (they may be rarely recorded but native). Thus a synthesis of this knowledge is timely and of wide international interest.
