Developing and assessing a density surface model in a Bayesian hierarchical framework with a focus on uncertainty: insights from simulations and an application to fin whales (Balaenoptera physalus)
Farzin Shabani –– David L Miller spent lots of time and effort on this MS. I have never seen such detailed feedback on any manuscripts. Thanks again and I do appreciate your significant contribution.
Munidopsis species (Crustacea: Decapoda: Munidopsidae) from carcass falls in Weijia Guyot, West Pacific, with recognition of a new species based on integrative taxonomy
Juan J. Morrone –– Very interesting analysis describing a new species from an unusual place.
Evidence of acclimatization or adaptation in Hawaiian corals to higher ocean temperatures
Introgression between ecologically distinct species following increased salinity in the Colorado Delta- Worldwide implications for impacted estuary diversity
Therese Markow –– It's a first and the data are very strong/
Genome-wide identification of ABA receptor PYL family and expression analysis of PYLs in response to ABA and osmotic stress in Gossypium
Pankaj Jaiswal –– It contributes to PYL gene family annotation in cotton.
Cell wall composition and lignin biosynthetic gene expression along a developmental gradient in an Australian sugarcane cultivar
Pankaj Jaiswal –– It is an important piece of work describing the cell wall composition from an agronomic food crop that is also a potential bioenergy feedstock.
