Editor rating: 7 / 10Gerrit Beemster –– The involvement in of the micro biome in the functioning of plants (is it is in animals) is rapidly becoming evident over the recent years. This article is a nice example of this.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Natasha de Vere –– Interesting article
Editor rating: 8 / 10Gerrit Beemster –– The approach integrates a large amount of data on flowering time regulation and provides a new method for this incorporating modelling with expression and phenotypic data.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Ana Grande-Pérez –– A comprehensive and useful tool that will aid plant science community in the study of geminivirus genomics
Editor rating: 8 / 10Joao Rocha –– Basically, the study determined the toxicity of neonicotinoids in non-target organism (earthworm), which is important from the environmental/ecological point of views. Furthermore, the study can be a motivation to the increase the exploitation of earthworm (Lumbricus terrestris) as an alternative and simple animal model to study the toxicity of different chemical agents.

Editor rating: 8 / 10Blanca Landa –– The review was on time and very productive and thoroughly conducted
Editor rating: 8 / 10Richard Cowling –– This article is important because it focuses on an area that is both well known and extraordinarily species-rich. So there are lots of insights useful for estimating species numbers in other hotspots, a currently "hot" topic.
