Editor rating: 7 / 10James Reimer –– Very interesting deep-sea work combining basic biodiversity studies with ecology, with important implications for competition and populations in these understudied ecosystems.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Patricia Gandini –– An important long term study that show how populations change to different conditions and how to sample this variations, an important tool to conserve and protect right whales
Section Editor rating: 7 / 10James Reimer –– eDNA is an "exploding" field of study, and basic field methodology and analyses as in this paper are needed.
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.
