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: 6 / 10Joseph Gillespie –– It evaluates one of the most commonly-used approaches for assessing arthropod community composition.
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: 6 / 10Bruno Marino –– The impact of sea level rise and changing landscapes on the survival of island waterbird populations is of high importance for contemporary and future populations. The authors study such impacts for the Hawaiian common gallinule on the island of O'ahu. Sea level rise projections and factors relating to survival are employed in a model approach. The results have implications for management strategies and clearly signal the need for expanded studies across the Hawaiian islands.
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.
