Editor rating: 7 / 10Dezene Huber –– Two new species descriptions for an understudied part of the world that is facing cumulative anthropogenic threats.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Mark Costello –– Due to the Suez Canal, the Mediterranean has more introduced species than any other sea area. However, there are often misidentifications and species suggested as "invasive" which are not (they may be rarely recorded but native). Thus a synthesis of this knowledge is timely and of wide international interest.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Philip Cox –– This article describes a new technique for analysing the results of FEA. It has the potential to be used widely in the discipline.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Christopher Cooper –– One of very few articles on Trichoplax, an emerging model organism of increasing importance in evo-devo biology.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Philip Cox –– The method used could be widely applicable for inferring ecology in extinct species.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Darren Ward –– x-ray microtomography
Editor rating: 7 / 10Claudia Marsicano –– due to the scarcity of good postcranial descriptions not only on travesodontids but on cynodonts in general.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Donald Kramer –– It provides a coherent synthesis of a large amount of data framed by a coherent hypothesis.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Tim Collins –– To the extent that phylogenetics is used across all biological disciplines, these results may be significant, especially, if they do the suggested data/method exploration in the revisions to address the conflicting results between methodologies.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Kenneth De Baets –– The authors describe new semi-aquatic pondweed bugs and a potential mechanism for their absence in other equally old deposits. The also highlight the use of infrared microscopy as promising technique to study of poorly visible organisms preserved in amber. It would therefore be of interest to entomologist, evolutionary biologist and paleontologist alike.
