Section Editor rating: 8 / 10Patricia Gandini –– The paper contribute to the knowledge of an the Amazonian Biodiversity and of an unknown Amazonian anfibia
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: 8 / 10Kara Hoover –– Comprehensive approach to reviewing literature and available data focused on primate conservation in critical zones.
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: 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: 8 / 10Mark Costello –– It suggests that sea snakes are already changing their distribution in response to climate change.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Luis Eguiarte –– Gunnera is a genus of plants that have fascinated scientist for a long time, in particular for the very large leaves of some species and because its symbiotic relationship with the nitrogen fixing cyanobacteria Nostoc. For a many years, some botanists suspected it to be a very old, primitive genus, perhaps basal in the phylogeny of the Angiosperms. While latter molecular phylogenies did not support this position, this paper shows that indeed Gunnera is an old genus, with a complex evolutionary and phylogeographic history, and a recent radiation in the Andes. All these new results are relevant for understanding why the Neotropics have so many plant species, more than any other similar region in the planet.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Curtis Daehler –– This work provides genetic evidence suggesting the native range of a widely distributed animal that was accidentally spread by humans starting hundreds of years ago.
