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.
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: 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: 8 / 10Ronaldo Francini-Filho –– Tech tools for coral reef research are emerging fast and boosting science
Editor rating: 8 / 10Scott Ferrenberg –– This article introduces, in a tangible way, methods for combining biological data with environmental data to identify boundaries and edge effects free of bias from the human point of view. This set of techniques could substantially improve our understanding of why species are affected by some edge conditions but go seemingly unaffected by others. The potential use of this approach in conservation and protected area delineation is clear, but I also see other possible applications such as determining the factors that influence spatial patterns in plant productivity and biogeochemical processes.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Ilaria Negri –– The article deals with a new biotechnology with broad application in agriculture but with a potential risk for non target insects
