Editor rating: 7 / 10María Ángeles Esteban –– The paper could be of great interest due to the actual limitations of proteins to fed aquatic animals.
Editor rating: 8 / 10James Reimer –– This is a large-scale, multi-author work combining a review of ray conservation with suggestions for future conservation strategy.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Magnus Johnson –– The use of e-DNA for ecological surveys is an important development of interest to a broad range of scientists.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Alex Ford –– The research of thermal tolerance and thermal stress between and within species is an important field in the study of changing climates and the ability of organisms to adapt. This manuscript provides some interesting new data on the inter & intra species differences in heat shock protein responses of temperature stress.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Magnus Johnson –– The development of effective fishtraps that allow for diversification of inshore potting fleets would be important for many inshore fishing communities.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Seabird McKeon –– The article measures the physiological and ecological responses of an ice-dependent animal to a changing climate (through ice-loss). As such, it is at the leading edge of how climate change will impact species and ecological relationships.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Joseph Pawlik –– The importance of DOM in coral reef ecosystems is just beginning to be appreciated -- this paper is on the leading edge in this research area.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Xavier Pochon –– This study reports the diversity of dominant and background symbiotic dinoflagellates in a range of common scleractinian corals from an understudied region (Moorea, Tahiti).
Editor rating: 8 / 10Jack Stanford –– The paper adds a significant contribution to understanding of plankton ecology in freshwater lakes. As factually noted in the abstract "for the first time simultaneous measurements of metals and P stoichiometry in freshwater phytoplankton are reported." The paper should be of wide interest.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Ivo Feussner –– This is one of the first in which RNA seq data are made publicly available for this organism.
