Rapid rise in toxic load for bees revealed by analysis of pesticide use in Great Britain (2018) PeerJ
Graciela Piñeiro –– This is an interesting and very important article and as such I am very glad to know that it was the most shared last month. It clearly demonstrates the high degree of th... Read more
Editor rating: 9 / 10Hong Yang –– This paper increases our understanding of the water resource in oases in West China in the future climate change.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Samuel Abiven –– This work combines technical and methodological improvements and potential applications for agriculture. It could have an impact for different aspects on the scientific community.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Jacyra Soares –– The river air-water temperature relationship was investigated by developing three different machine learning models and three standard models. The model results can have important applications such as to support river recovery management plan and environmental impact statement analysis.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Kalliat Valsaraj –– This paper describes the pollution in the Baltic sea and explains the origins of the same. This knowledge will be useful in future efforts at clean up or prevention of contaminants from entering the area.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Danlin Yu –– Decent combination of modeling, filed experience, and data analysis
Editor rating: 7 / 10Xiaomin Li –– The topic of direct interspecies electron transfer (DIET) between iron-reducing bacteria and methanogens has been paid more and more attraction these years, and iron oxides such as magnetite may function like e-pili to facilitate electron transfer. This study, however, demonstrates that e-pili are still necessary for the DIET between between Geobacter and Methanosarcina species, though the presence of magnetite can promote the methane production in this coculture.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Louise Willemen –– Decision makers need informative maps of wetlands. This study shows the variation in wetland maps resulting from different classification methods and as such highlighting the uncertainty of map classes. The way wetland maps are made impacts the planning and evaluation policies.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Jack Stanford –– Great contribution to the conservation of caves and cave faunas.
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.
