Editor rating: 7 / 10Robert Winkler –– The article has practical implications in the conservation of tree species.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Kenneth De Baets –– The authors document the fossil pollen record of parasitic plants across various continents and use it together with molecular sequences to constrain their evolutionary time-scale . This will be relevant for palynologists, (paleo)botanist and evolutionary biologists in general.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Xiaohui Wang –– n/a
Editor rating: 7 / 10Sara Varela –– It adds new data about species niche conservatism while diversification occur
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: 7 / 10María Ángeles Esteban –– The paper could be of great interest due to the actual limitations of proteins to fed aquatic animals.
