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 / 10Konstantinos Kormas –– This paper contributes to the rather limited field of culturable airborne microorganisms through a piece of a well performed scientific research.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Jack Stanford –– The paper describes an agent based model that novelly integrates land use impacts in northern Alberta in ways that will be useful elsewhere.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Jack Stanford –– The paper adds a significant contribution to understanding of plankton ecology in freshwater lakes. As factually noted in the abstract "for the first time simultaneous measurements of metals and P stoichiometry in freshwater phytoplankton are reported." The paper should be of wide interest.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Timothy Read –– Metagenomics is set to become a major cross-disciplinary field. The article brings in a new source of metadata to help understand microbial ecology.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Robert Costanza –– An important and unique piece of empirical evidence about the impacts of dredging on corals
Editor rating: 7 / 10Mauricio Rodriguez-Lanetty –– The findings from this study are of considerable significance to understand the potential reproductive responsiveness of an ecological important coral species in the French Polynesian region.
Editor rating: 7 / 10A. Murat Eren –– The study combines multiple 'omics techniques (metagenomics, proteomics, and metabolomics) to gain further insights into the carbon cycling in soil.
Editor rating: 7 / 10David Day –– Important cross-disciplinary study combining social science and biochemistry to evaluate traditional medicine.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Leon Higley –– It provides valuable information on the interaction of biotic factors in shaping watershed (specifically river flow) structure.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Karen Osborn –– This article fills a data gap and makes a nice and believable correlation between phytoplankton abundance and barnacle recruitment.
