Editor rating: 7 / 10G Matt Davies –– A rare experimental validation of ecological theory and frequently offered explanations for the spatial structuring of sand-dune ecosystems. This paper goes further than the normal descriptive approach and uses manipulations to discern important interactions and processes
Editor rating: 8 / 10James Reimer –– Micro- to regional scale analyses of meiofaunal communities, with both evidence of environmental factors and possible influences of trawling and environment (sediment density). This study sets the stage for many different future works.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Louise Barrett –– This is a fascinating system, and this is a well designed study.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Blanca Landa –– Organic production is its initial stage sin China and this mansucript can provide information on the advantae and changes of organic vs conventioal production
Editor rating: 7 / 10Wendy Rauw –– It is an original work on grazing patterns in sheep. The method of using GPS data provides very useful information to sheep grazing.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Dezene Huber –– Well written and timely. Covers some initial information on an introduce species in California, and provides some early-impression natural historical information that will be potentially important in the long-term record.
Editor rating: 7 / 10James Reimer –– This work examines large-scale ocean circulation patterns as a factor in determining the severity of coral bleaching events - something that has been little discussed or examined in the literature until now.
Editor rating: 7 / 10James Reimer –– A nice and well-put together ecological study, combining a research question and clear hypothesis with stable isotope analyses.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Joseph Pawlik –– This paper can be added to a growing list of recent contributions that find no relationship between seaweed cover and fish abundance on Caribbean reefs. This study is important because of its temporal and spatial scale, which is different from other studies.
