Editor rating: 7 / 10Alastair Culham –– This is thoprough research on a generally neglected topic. Aquatic macrophytes are under-studied with molecular techniques due to the risks of contamination from aquatic algae. The combination of population genetics, geographic pattern analysis and conservation make this paper novel and particularly interesting.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Marion Röder –– The authors present results about the genetic diversity, gene flow and population structure of olive trees in the Mediterranean region.
Section Editor rating: 8 / 10Patricia Gandini –– The paper contribute to the knowledge of an the Amazonian Biodiversity and of an unknown Amazonian anfibia
Section Editor rating: 7 / 10Patricia Gandini –– Critical an important issue worldwide
Section Editor rating: 7 / 10Patricia Gandini –– New findings in an important and scarce investigated subject
Editor rating: 8 / 10Philip Cox –– The many different scanning methodologies now available are being used across many different research fields. Thus, the results of this study of high interest to researchers in a variety of disciplines.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Bruno Marino –– The impact of anthropogenic wildfire on islands is increasingly important in the context of expanding human presence and climate change. The study considers factors controlling wildfire for the Pacific islands including southeastern Polynesia. The study brings together wildfire impacts and coeval changes in native vegetation and for invasive species. The study provides a key baseline community resource for fire management on the Pacific Islands studied.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Kara Hoover –– Comprehensive approach to reviewing literature and available data focused on primate conservation in critical zones.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Xavier Pochon –– This study developed and described a new DNA extraction methods that facilitates rapid bulk extraction of freshwater invertebrate samples for metabarcoding, while enabling the same samples to be used for individual DNA barcoding and taxonomic identification. This approach will be of great use to researchers aiming to conduct morpho-molecular analyses of freshwater invertebrates in a rapidly advancing field.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Paolo Giordani –– A good example of concrete output of a modeling approach, with very concrete information for conservation planning of a highly endangered tree species from the Canary laurel forest.
