Editor rating: 7 / 10Keith Crandall –– For all of us interested in Chilean wines and keeping the industry healthy and strong as well as for those who would like to do some comparative metagenomics across vineyards around the world, this study represents a great step in building an appropriate database for monitoring the impact of soil microbiome on wine quality.
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.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Kenneth De Baets –– Present new data on insect herbivore - plant interaction in southern latitudes and their potential relationship with changes in environmental parameters (e.g., climate).
Editor rating: 8 / 10Stephen Johnson –– I am not intimately acquainted with the current state of the field and so I am guided in this rating by the response of the reviewer.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Richard Cowling –– The paper represents a comprehensive inventory in a remote area vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. It will form the basis for a monitoring programme that will likely reveal important trends in biotic change.
Editor rating: 7 / 10David Roberts –– Brings together and adds more knowledge of this clade, including new data thus representing a monograph
Editor rating: 7 / 10Alexander Mikheyev –– This is a useful tool, which may be of use to many scientists studying TE insertions.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Gerard Lazo –– With reference genomes taking shape and becoming ready; background experiments to build hypotheses on genome structure are still relevant. Though a clear answer may not have been presented here, a negative result is not necessarily unhelpful; another approach should be contemplated.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Blanca Landa –– It describes new sources of rare endophytes that can serve as new BCAs
