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: 6 / 10J. Thewissen –– New method that is applicable to multiple animal groups.
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: 6 / 10Claudia Marsicano –– It applies a novel analysis to the study of vertebrate burrows, therefore opening a new avenue for future research in the area.
Editor rating: 6 / 10Kenneth De Baets –– This is an nice example using fossil fish of how quantitative methods can be used to revise the status of oversplitting of fossil species into a more biological species concept. This could also be used to resolve various other oversplitted species.
Section Editor rating: 6 / 10Andrew Farke –– Detailed description of track morphotypes with a broad global distribution.
Editor rating: 6 / 10Graciela Piñeiro –– I think that the article will be a good referent for future studies on this particularly controversial extinction. It is based on a convincing stratigraphically controlled list of data and offers an approach to the causes that could have amplified the abrupt declining in tetrapod diversity observed during the Redtankian period.
