Editor rating: 7 / 10Moisés Canle –– Breaks a barrier into the development of thin films for photocatalysis.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Jonathan Tonkin –– The authors find that converting as little as 20% of a catchment to fertilized land can shift estuarine vegetation from seagrass to macroalgae dominated. They find that simple land use measures – in this case, % fertilized land – may act as strong indicators of eutrophication risk to estuaries.
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.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Donald Kramer –– Although only dealing with a single invasive species, it is a very thorough and interesting analysis of the potential for oil rigs to move fish (and potentially other marine species) around the world.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Konstantinos Kormas –– A very interesting paper for several disciplines related to the importance of antibiotic resistance in nature.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Juan Riesgo-Escovar –– It addresses methodological problems that hinder comparison of these type of results from different publications.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Michael Huston –– Some of the logistical constraints on obtaining adequate genetic samples and interpreting their patterns over large complex regions can be addressed by multi-scale spatial analyses of the data.
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
Editor rating: 7 / 10Joseph Gillespie –– This is important work on a small scale, pertaining to the biology of these corals. But it is further ecological significance, and thus will be of interest to marine biologists ecologists and environmental scientists.
