Editor rating: 8 / 10Jianjun Wang –– Revealing latitudinal gradients via the lens of metacommunity on islands, such as New Zealand, is rare and importantly complementary for previous studies at continent scales.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Chris Vulpe –– This article provides an interesting example of behavioral adaptation to microplastics pollution in a freshwated aquatic ecosystem. The work suggests additional work should be done in other ecosystems to assess if behavioral adaptation may mitigate the effects of microplastic pollution.
Section Editor rating: 8 / 10Dezene Huber –– I agree with the one reviewer who notes the novelty and utility of this work. This is particularly true in this era of pollinator decline.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Robert Winkler –– Use of remote sensing data to evaluate ecological/ biodiversity data that otherwise would be difficult to obtain.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Jenny Renaut –– The article is providing nice information and will rise interest for the people working in the field of pollinators and ecosystem services.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Jack Stanford –– Great contribution to the conservation of caves and cave faunas.
Section Editor rating: 7 / 10Dezene Huber –– Interesting source of underlying data. May be applicable in other systems.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Dany Garant –– Nice overview of published literature on the topic.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Curtis Daehler –– Experiments demonstrate that although ants are frequent floral visitors and they carry pollen, they are not effective pollinators and they may even be detrimental to reproduction in a rare plant.
Editor rating: 7 / 10James Roper –– Over time, too many models have been applied under the assumption that they are effective without adequately testing whether they indeed do predict anything. This paper illustrates the issues with that approach and lays down a framework under which future models may be developed and tested.
