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: 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: 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.
