Editor rating: 9 / 10Tomas Hrbek –– An important contribution to distinguishing secondary contact from differentiation along a cline / parapatric differentiation.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Jose Maria Cardoso da Silva –– A good study that advances the knowledge of local biodiversity patterns in the Amazon.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Jean-Lou Justine –– A detailed work about parasites of invasive fish - very few similar works have been published.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Anastazia Banaszak –– There are few studies on species within turbid reef environments.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Leonardo Montagnani –– I believe that the scientific question the authors are addressing is relevant. However, there are some problems with the sampling scheme.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Paolo Giordani –– Simply the first human glance to the non-photosynthetic bacteria associated with marine lichens
Editor rating: 7 / 10Konstantinos Kormas –– This is a very interesting paper, on a rather under-investigated subject.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Mark Costello –– Tardigrades are extraordinarily robust organisms but their biogeography is poorly known. It is likely they are widespread and dispersed passively in water, perhaps air, and on animals. This paper provides novel evidence of their dispersal by birds.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Matthew Wilson –– The inclusion of multiple Amazonian ecosystems is shown to be important for species conservation.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Kenneth De Baets –– The paper tackles how the introduction of a non-host snail could help to interfere with development of bird schistosome cercariae and therefore might be a way to control Swimmer’s itch. This also relates with the decoy or dilution effect which might influence disease risk. It is therefore of interest to parasitologists, ecologist and biologists in general.
