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: 7 / 10Georg Umgiesser –– This is an interesting contribution to processes on tidal flats, still not too much investigated in the oceanographic field.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Paolo Giordani –– Nice piece of work with improvements of a sampling strategy usually applied in the fields of Earth and environmental sciences
Editor rating: 7 / 10Yuming Guo –– This paper adds evidence on the associations between meteorological variables and road traffic injuries. It is important finding in the context of climate change.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Monika Mortimer –– The review gives a comprehensive overview of application areas of antimicrobial coatings (AMCs) and potential ecotoxicological hazards associated with the use of such materials. The authors also highlight the existing data gaps in the release of antimicrobial compounds from coatings, which impedes risk-benefit evaluation of AMCs.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Jason Blackburn –– Understanding human movements is critical for understanding disease movement and to predict possible targeted areas for intervention. This paper works toward mapping rural populations, which represent frequently under surveyed groups and populations difficult to provide appropriate intervention.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Leonardo Montagnani –– I believe that besides the difficulties encountered in the specific location, the paper is well done and methodologically relevant. I would recommend its approach to a wide range of scientific sectors related to the physical interaction between plants, animals and possibly humans.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Bo Huang –– This is an interesting work, which may be of value to a wide range of applications.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Lei Wang –– The use of multi-time LiDAR with a GIS for landslide model calibration is interesting
Editor rating: 8 / 10Tal Svoray –– Comparison between machine learning tools and geostatistics are in the front of geosciences
Editor rating: 7 / 10Andrea Cucco –– The deep oil spill is still an open issue in operational oceanography and this job can be considered a further step forward in understanding this phenomenon.
