Editor rating: 7 / 10Sheila Colla –– Contributes to a knowledge gap in the growing body of literature on plant-pollinator interactions.
Editor rating: 6 / 10Kenneth De Baets –– This quite an interesting contribution which investigated how climate could impact the plant-insect interaction and is therefore of interest to entomologists, botanist and climate scientists.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Kenneth De Baets –– This new approach allows to understand better benthic estuary communities by modelling them on various scales. It will therefore be of relevance for ecologist, zoologist and modellers.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Blanca Landa –– It provides new information on sponge microbiome
Editor rating: 8 / 10Michael LaMontagne –– The recent increase in crab populations in NE salt marshes could reflect sea level rise driven by climate change.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Bruno Marino –– The response of ecosystems to climate change is complex as evidenced by this study. The case of herbivory response is creatively explored within the context of climate change.
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.
