Douglas Burns –– Roth et al. present results of an analysis of change in vascular plant community structure at 129 sites in Switzerland over a 15-year period (2003-17) during which atmosp... Read more
Editor rating: 7 / 10Paolo Giordani –– A good methodological approach for limiting subjectivity in the the creation of functional groups.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Jose Montoya –– This work is an excellent example of pest control by an introduced natural enemy. It shows how ecological theory can be applied in the filed, and what is the positive economic impact in the long-run.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Paolo Giordani –– An in-depth study on the effects of elevation on the fungal community of the phyllosphere associated with a single tree species.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Paolo Giordani –– An original contribution on the ecology of overlooked epiphytic organismi.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Joseph Craine –– The authors provide an in-depth analysis of the microbial assemblages during decomposition in an under-researched system. These are sophisticated techniques that are helping to fundamentally change our understanding of microbial decomposition.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Ben Colman –– This work represents a rare glimpse into the relatively early stages of an anuran invasion. It lays out foundational knowledge on the direct and indirect consequences of the invasion on other anurans by delineating the diet of both the invader and native anurans across multiple habitats.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Tomas Hrbek –– An important contribution to distinguishing secondary contact from differentiation along a cline / parapatric differentiation.
Editor rating: 7 / 10José 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.
