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.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Anastazia Banaszak –– It addresses the effects of climate change on the distribution of a tropical species
Editor rating: 8 / 10Magnus Johnson –– This is an enigmatic species, long-lived species of which little is known.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Xavier Pochon –– This study developed a novel protocol using DNA metabarcoding for characterizing complex hard-bottom communities within marine protected areas of two Spanish National parks. This work provides a very interesting, novel, timely and thorough comparative analysis of COI and 18S markers in the context of marine biomonitoring, and offer a valuable baseline information for future biodiversity assessment of these complex benthic ecosystems.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Mark Costello –– It suggests that sea snakes are already changing their distribution in response to climate change.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Agus Santoso –– The vulnerability of Tufted Puffins has recently been raised by the mass mortality in 2016 which appeared to be linked to warming in the North Pacific. This present study projects that the nesting habitat may increasingly become unsuitable by 2050 under global warming, providing quantitative estimates and geographical distribution of the risk.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Jack Stanford –– Great contribution to the conservation of caves and cave faunas.
