Editor rating: 7 / 10Kenneth De Baets –– The authors describe new finds of a widespread trace fossil and manage to use it to constrain the anatomy of its producer. It will therefore be relevant for ichnologist, (paleo)biologists and (paleo)ecologists.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Graciela Piñeiro –– This is an important contribution to the dinosaur reproductive behavior, and offers a pormenorized study of the evidence to suggest the presence of a cuticle-like layer in oviraptorid and alvarezsaurid dinosaur eggs.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Hans-Dieter Sues –– Important study on troodontid cranial structure.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Mark Young –– Gorgonopsians are an unstudied clade, which this paper helps to begin to rectify.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Andrew Farke –– Detailed description of an important taxon for sauropod workers.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Philip Cox –– This is a thorough study on an extensive dataset that will provide a model for other such macroevolutionary investigations.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Andrew Farke –– This study presents data applicable for many paleontologists in trying to establish life history information for snakes extant and extinct.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Kenneth De Baets –– Oldest best-preserved representatives of chalcid wasps which is relevant for entomologists, evolutionary biologist and paleontologists. The authors run a phylogenetic analysis to place them among their extant relatives.
Section Editor rating: 8 / 10Andrew Farke –– Excellent imagery and descriptions of an important taxon.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Laura Wilson –– Evaluates the impact of autapomorphies on the behaviour of tip-dating methods. The results are relevant for all future studies that employ tip-dating analyses.
