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.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Victoria Sosa –– Its global scale, considering all plant communities from the Andean Biodiversity hotspots is important
Editor rating: 8 / 10Bruno Marino –– Climate change in Chile may affect historic habitats for the guanaco, however, these changes are uncertain. This study presents insights into perturbation of guanaco habitat and implications for conservation of the lineage. The study has implications for past, present and future guanaco studies.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Bruno Marino –– This report offers clear management strategy for vertical habitat heterogeneity, such as vegetation cover, for the conservation of breeding bird diversity in South Korea. The results of the study offer conservation options for the region given the potential pressures from anthropogenic enchroachment and climate change.
